Netflix’s Tour de France documentary, Tour de France: Unchained , was finally released on Thursday, almost a year on from the race it covers, and just over three weeks away from the next edition. Good timing.
There are eight episodes, which cover different aspects of the race; it is mostly done chronologically, but some stages are covered multiple times, from different angles. Seven teams feature primarily: AG2R Citroën, Alpecin-Deceuninck, EF Education-EasyPost, Groupama-FDJ, Ineos Grenadiers, Jumbo-Visma and Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl.
More or less, each episode focuses on one of these teams, but there are some that appear more often than others; naturally, given some teams won more than others, and only one rider can win overall.
Each segment lasts about 40 minutes, tracking the action from Copenhagen, Denmark, where the race began, to Paris, France, the traditional end of the Tour.
