An official trailer of the much anticipated Netflix Tour de France documentary has emerged, showing how the series will portray the suffering and celebration of professional cycling by combining television and on-bike video footage with moments captured by roadside fans and on team buses and intimate behind-the-scenes interviews.

Other cycling documentaries are soon to air, with Jumbo-Visma releasing ‘All In: Team Jumbo-Visma ‘, on Amazon Prime in the Netherlands this week, while Soudal-QuickStep have also confirmed that a documentary about their 2022 season will be aired on Amazon Prime.
