Friday File: TdF: behind the scenes of a popular festival

Le Tour is coming...
July 2 - July 24

Carolle discovered this wonderful documentary to me... Tour de France: dans les coulisses d'une fete populaire. Translation: Tour de France: behind the scenes of a popular festival. I enjoyed it so much that it's perfect for Friday File. The Tour starts on July 2 and this video is a fine lead up to the La Grande Boucle.

Too often we see the 'stars' or riders seductively captivating us. This documentary turns that around and follows a TV crew, day to day out of the spotlight of the other 'stars' that keep this party a success. Follow the challenges, commitment and achievements of hundreds of men and women that keep this chaotic but beautiful circus performing. Vive le Tour!

Starting Sunday...
