Can an amateur handle the Tour de France? Dan Francis gives it a try. There is a great scene in there where he is actually driven back by 12 metre high snow and a risk of avalanche. It gives you an idea of how high they go in the Alps. Not only is he an amateur, he does it without teammates or a peloton. The Iron Cross, a time trial in Paris traffic, the cold, the cobblestonesâ€¦ Dan Francis is one tough dude. Impressive and fun documentary. Here is an interview with Dan Francis on the experience.
