Video shows many ways the Tour de France is awesome6/30/2012
The Tour de France kicks off today in Liège, Belgium, for the 99th time, and to get you pumped up, here is the official teaser for the Tour. The video showcases lots of dudes on bikes, but it also features some seriously cool geography--like majestic-looking mountain ranges, castles perched on hilltops, and suspended bridges. All of these amazing images reinforce what we already know: The race is freakin' hard. The video's soundtrack is music by French progressive pop artist Sarah W. Papsun, giving the whole teaser an ephemeral-yet-hopeful feeling. If you're not clear on what French progressive pop sounds like, you can give the full song a listen here.
