Nostalgia lovers or those who want to relive Tour de France moments of yesteryear can do so next Thursday (July 3).
An Evening of Films of The Tour de France takes place at London’s Riverside Studios, Hammersmith, where three films will recount the drama, the excitement and sometimes controversy of the big race.
At 7pm, Louise Mallle’s Vive le Tour 1962 will begin proceedings. The 18-minute documentary examines the issues of providing food for the riders and looking at an issue that some 52 years on still dominates today’s topics: doping.
At 7.20pm, Ray Pascoe’s illuminating and insightful Notebooks from the Tour: A Cycling Fan’s View will take to the screen. Filmed on a handheld camcorder, film-maker Ray enlightens viewers on events between the 2005 and 2010 Tours.
With an access all areas pass, Ray gathers exclusive interviews, chats to the Tour’s madcap fans and its riders, while also capturing the dramatic ascents and descents of the Ventoux, Galibier et al. mountain passes.
The evening is concluded by a showing of Pepe Danquart’s Hell on Wheels which is a German film from the eyes of Team Telekom to mark 100 years since the Tour’s inception.
Tickets are priced at £9.50 and can be bought on the Riverside Studios website.
