The Science of Lance Armstrong

If you can get past the melodramatic music and commentary, this Discovery Channel documentary is worth watching. It reinforces what we already know about the story of Lance Armstrong: a genetically unique lead man; a big budget; an unrivalled supporting cast. But this film gives a great insight into how the three elements came together to push the boundaries of cycling and –  in many ways – changed the complexion of science in sport generally.

It is available to buy on DVD – I wouldn’t spend a tenner on it, but it’s been posted in 5 parts on You Tube.
