The new cycling season is slowly approaching and one of the annual competitions is of course the Tour de France. We can’t avoid it; the major cycling festival that is the subject of many films and documentaries. ‘New Heroes’ is one of many, but is certainly worth taking an hour and a half out to watch.
‘New Heroes’ goes behind the scenes with a professional cycling team that wants to prove you can win without doping. In the hundredth edition of the Tour de France, the then young Dutch team from Argos-Shimano were seeking revenge on the old-guard that had put cycling in a very bad light due to drug use.
A fantastic hour and a half documentary focusing on a cycling team at the centre of the biggest cycling competition in the world.. It is now four years old but no matter. It’s still perfect for an evening in the armchair with a beer to hand. Do it!
