Following British cyclist Mark Cavendish and his Columbia-HTC team in the 2009 Tour de France, Jason Berry’s doc is an insightful and triumphant study of the agony and the ecstasy that is competitive cycling. Charismatic ‘Manx Missile’ Cavendish is a treat to watch as he soars through various stages of the Tour; Berry also takes in his rivals, as well as showing Lance Armstrong’s comeback before his subsequent doping scandal and disgrace. A must for all Tour enthusiasts.
