Summary

Hell on Wheels

Le Tour de France - the toughest bicycle race of all, celebrated its 100th birthday in 2003. Year after year, this spectacular event fascinates millions of people worldwide. And the winner takes it all...

But within the beauty of the French landscape and the suspension of the race, Academy Award-winner Pepe Danquart also tells about the torture and the pain, the fear and the weaknesses of the men. "Hell on Wheels" offers a true insight into the tour and brings us close to the individuals on the bike. We see the tears of those who are out of the race and the joy of those, who suffered but fulfilled their biggest dream: To reach the finishing-line of this hardest race of all. The film gives a review of the genesis and history of the tour in its hundred years of existence, shows the gigantic organization of the tour, the fanatic crowd along the route and in front of TVs worldwide. "Hell on Wheels" presents an outstanding inner view of one of the biggest sports events.
