Tonight we visited the Ontario Science Centre for a premier screening of Wired to Win, a documentary on ‘surviving the Tour de France‘. The film actually is more about your brain (generally) but certainly does a great job advertising the cycling. As you can imagine, G and I were keen to see this film having put a kilometer or three (actually 180km) on our own bikes when we raced in and completed the Ironman Lake Placid Ironman Triathlon in July 2004.
This film was shot in 2004 initially using Tyler Hamilton (who ironically was disqualified from the race that summer because of drug doping) and other riders. They’ve taken two years to rejing the film for theatrical release on the IMAX screen. The Omnimax images of the centenary Tour de France are astounding and worth any price of admission. To boot, I learn a few things about my brain and how it functions to boot.
My rating: 8 out of 10.
