Movie Monday: Tour de France 2013 Trailer
OK, so the 100th edition of the Tour de France is still 19 days away but who are we kidding, the excitement starts right now! With the Dauphine over it's back to the drawing board for some big names and hopes to hold form for others but the race is being set up nicely - lets hope the 100th edition can live up to expectations. 2012 had a pleasing result for the British but it wasn't exactly a vintage year and now 2013 see's the return of some big names, some big mountains and some big ambitions. From now until the 29th this blog will feature some little teasers and tasters in an effort to build the excitement we have come to know and love with the Tour de France. There will be some video's, history lessons, interesting book reviews (reading to accompany the viewing) and of course 'the' preview. Today we start, naturally, with the official 2013 trailer and as trailers go it's a pretty good one - it should get the mouth watering nicely! A quick note to add that between now and the Tour I get married and take my honeymoon and though the blog may slow down for a week or so before the Tour I hope there will still be some content and of course I will be back in full swing when the racing starts on the 29th...Enjoy!
