Armstrong has ripped the legs of his adversaries on this climb of Mount Ventoux... the Tour revisited.

Just got my 10 hour DVD of the '02 TdF.

The 10 hour set comes on 5 DVD's and the production values and commentaries are classic WCP with just enuff color commentary to keep some of the longer stage coverage interesting... with Sherwin, Imlach and Liggett doing their thing with the aplomb you've grown to know and luv.

Picture quality is great (albeit, with the occasional breakup due to uplink interference) with a few more steady cam shots from choppers than I remember in past videos... which, on some of the long range shots, is quite dramatic as the peloton snakes it's way through the countryside.

The only downside I've noticed so far (I haven't watched all 10 hours yet) is the DVD set's menu doesn't appear to be supported across all five DVD's (unless it's a problem with my machine). This makes it difficult to scene search under some conditions (which should be one of the great strengths of this format). If it's a problem with the DVD's, perhaps WCP can clean this up on future runs (I'll send 'em an email).

The set comes in a hinged plastic case that should make it easy to organize with your other DVD's. Considering the weather patterns settling in over the northern hemisphere... this might be just the fix to get through them cold winter nights...

We abide.

Remain In Light.

Be the bike.
I really like Imlach's predictably dry English sense of humor.JS

Very inline with Ligget and Sherwin.
