The predictable plot features a man in a midlife crisis overcoming challenges to rebuild his life. The story goes that he’s lost his wife, job and more and has only his bike left. He decides to ride the Tour de France one day ahead of the race. At first the project is crazy but people pick up on it, he gets joined by others, crowds applaud him, the media go crazy and even the Tour de France maillot jaune gets jealous of the attention and publicity.
It could turn out to be great… but it looks like what the French call a téléfilm, something that goes straight to TV.

In 1986 Franco-Algerian artist Mahjoub Ben Bella painted 12km of the Paris-Roubaix cobbles. It might be the longest piece of art in the world but there is little trace of the work today, except this photo via local newspaper La Voix du Nord.
