Aussie Onslaught: 25 Years of le Tour

Something I captured and encoded last night from SBS: Aussie Onslaught: 25 Years of le Tour.

"An in-depth look at the past 25 years of Australian cyclists in the Tour de France. The competitive nature of Australians on the sporting arena is legendary, and the roads of the Tour de France are no exception. Australian pro-cyclists have dominated the roads of Europe in this traditional sport, dating back over 100 years. Robbie McEwen, Stuart O'Grady, and Cadel Evans are Australians who have become household names in Europe, while Phil Anderson is regarded as a modern-day pioneer, after leading the Aussie invasion with his first Tour de France appearance in the early 1980s. There was a time when being selected to compete in the Tour de France was an achievement in itself. Now, the expectations are much higher. Stage victories are common, and many predict it will only be a matter of time before an Australian steps onto the top of the winner's podium in Paris as the conqueror of the world's biggest cycle race."
