    Thanks for posting that. 8)

    Some fairly harrowing scenes in part 2 in the bits which look at crashes and doping....
  • I think there's some debate as to whether some of the footage was faked (particularly the guy falling off in exhaustion at about 4.00 onwards). A lot of it looks real, however, and a lot of the filmed stuff from this era shows riders in a total state of exhaustion - the result of pushing too far under the pain killing effects of amphetamines and alcohol etc perhaps?

    Fantastic video Le Commentateur! Tough, tough guys, cant imagine any of them pulling out of a race because of a little Irish rain :wink:
