just received my first copy by subscription and the free tape accompanying it. i was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the magazine, especially the (watson) photography, and the realistic year-in-bikes buying guide in the back. to me, it's worth the pricey yearly subscription.

I selected the '95 TdF based upon some posts i read here awhile back about indurain. i'd already had '90, '92 and '94 (i think...). agreed, it's one of the better tours in the last 10 years (i still have yet to see '98). in one of the earlier stages, indurain (not yet in yellow) goes off the front over relatively flat terrain (!) and finishes in the first few (or first, i can't remember). the stages including the loss of casartelli (sp?) and the following reflections and tributes were touching.

a good video if you have the chance to pick it up. magazine and the video highly recommended.

Indurain broke away and Bruyneel chased him down then sat on his wheel all the way to the finish: only to pip Miguel at the line.

What puzzles me about race tapes is coverage of incidents like that. Specifically, how did a rider of Indurain's stature get off on a solo break? How hard can it be to show the move that made the break?
