The Col de Galibier is being cleared of snow for the Giro. The pass will open two weeks earlier than normal for Stage 15 of the Italian race when it visits France. Watch as snow ploughs and even explosives are deployed to help clear the road.
We are currently in pre-production on Rough Rider, the story of Paul Kimmage’s quest to find honesty and hope inside the most physically and mentally demanding race on the planet, the Tour de France.
To this point, we have filmed with Paul as he has seen Lance Armstrong’s fall from grace while Paul himself has been threatened with legal action by senior members of the UCI, the world cycling body. This summer, we will follow him on the 100th Tour de France. Told against the backdrop of the centenary Tour, and through the eyes of one of the most aggravated whistleblowers in sports journalism, we are going on a journey that could prove to be one of the most contentious sports films of our time.
The film is due for completion by November 2013, with broadcast and screening details to be confirmed.
