Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Tour de France theme

At the end of every stage, they play a recap of photos and clips of the days stage with some really kick a** music, does anyone have a mp3 of this, or a link to a site that does? Because that would be a sweet tune to get focused for racing.

You mean the instrumental music in the background while Phil talks?

Yes, right at the very end after they go over the next day's stage and then they show clips and highlights of the day's stage in a slidshow format.

Darned if I know. Seems like whoever wrote it would want credit for it and Versus would have to give it. Kind of like that music on the Geico commercial where the caveman in on the tram at the airport with tennis racket under arm. Catchy little tune there that I have heard a number of people comment on. Seems like the writer is losing out on some money because nobody knows what's it's called and by whom

The themes from a couple years ago were from In the Groove, who had downloadable mp3s on their site. Not sure who's done the last couple years.

I'm pretty sure they hired someone to write that for the tour, and do not need to give credit since they own the rights to it...but correct me if I'm wrong.
