Film Friday: A Mellow 2012 Tour de France

OK, so its not the official Tour de France promo, but here's ITV4's mellow promotional vid. Its short but its a nice little teaser ahead of this years Tour which starts a week tomorrow! As most of my regular readers are well aware, I'm a little disappointed with this years route and indeed this years contenders. Yes I know, I will be supporting Wiggins and the prospect of a Brit winning the tour is an exciting one but I can't help feel a little underwhelmed at the lack of Andy Schleck, Alberto Contador and mountainous terrain. Even with their inclusion though I would be backing Bradley Wiggins for the win, the man is on fire and of course the route suits him favourably - I just hope if (or when!) he pulls it off that he doesn't become known merely as the man who won the Tour when Schleck and Contador were missing! Anyway, this spirited little promo has lifted my gloom and with a week to go I'm starting to look forward to the Tour once again, helped by the exquisite backing music by one of my current favourite bands 'Daughter'......Enjoy.
