A race that doesn't give an attacker the chance to finish it off alone is not a race anymore.

Thanks! Excellent video! I especially loved the opening music. I know it's Ennio Morriccone but I'm not sure if it's from Once Upon A Time in the West or The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, 2 of my favorite movies. I'm leaning towards the latter in the final graveyard showdown scene.:)

indeed, it just feels wrong to watch highlights of the 2012 tour de france with epic music when the race itself was everything but epic.

The Tour actually did it.
But it mostly shows the stage victories, some crashes, the Péguère incident, the very few attacks from Evans and Nibali, and the Froome breakaways from Wiggins. And of course, as always, France's landscapes.

2010 was the best. 3 muse tracks, and that season had epic flanders and liege, decent vuelta, best giro ever, and some great moments to chime the music in with.

I like a combination of commentary with music. Haven't seen the vid yet as I don't have sound at work ;)

Will watch it this evening for sure.

Anyone knows if Sporza.be allready did their 2012 cycling recap movie? They are always great as well.
