Anyone know of someone who sells Tour De France, Giro videos in DVD format? Just tired of my VideoTapes wearing out on me.

This has come up here before. So far there are no races on DVD. Maybe if we all email World Cycling and demand DVD we might get somewhere. They ain't gonna do it if they don't think they can sell it. Personally, I'd pay a little bit more to have them on DVD, especially since I've retired the VCR....

www.worldcycling.com --- service@worldcycling.com

Come on folks, click on New Message or whatever, paste in that address and say "I WANT MY DVD!" Doesn't matter if you don't have a DVD player. You will eventually and you know it. VCR's are going the way of downtube shifters (gone but not forgotten!) Let's get the ball rolling so you have something cool to watch. : )

I'll never buy a VHS tape again if I can help it. DVDs are here to stay and most are priced reasonably well too unlike those overpriced VHS taped that WCP sells. I can't figure it out. Everyone else is selling DVDs...maybe they are afraid they can't unload their current inventory of VHS if they release DVD? A while back they listed a Giro as being available soon on DVD but it never materialized. Wonder what happened?

I noticed last year they were offering this, only I thought it was P-R on DVD. I called to order and was told it "fell through." Do you think they advertised the DVD format to simply gauge interest?

This is getting a little off the topic, but personally I am willing to pay more for DVD because I value the format more. The cost of production is irrelevant and as long as the consumer considers the deliverable a good value then all is well. This is basic market economics stuff. The base price of an item is largely determined by manufacturing and production costs, but after that the higher price one may pay is because the item exudes "value".

I would love to get some cycling DVDs because I could pause with clarity and watch some sprints in slow motion. Also, it wouldn't wear out with countless hours using them for winter training.

I guarantee that cycling DVDs will sell like hotcakes as soon as someone releases them.
