Strengths:    Good coverage of the climbing stages

Weaknesses:    Acrobats, acrobats everywhere!

Bottom Line:   
This 4-hour version provides a good overview of the race. As usual, Phil and Paul do a nice job of narating the excitement. Hoever, I have to hear Paul Sherwin say, "The man is an absolute acrobat on the bike!" one more time I'm gonna hunt hive down and beat him with a rubber hose!

Strengths:    Good tour summary, suprisingly good sound.

Weaknesses:    Expensive (As is virtually everything from WCP), It's not everything, but I didn't want 10 hours.

Bottom Line:   
Good summary of the tour, with extra coverage on the time trials and mountain stages. Video quality is good, but like the previous reviewer, I was suprised at the 5:1 Surround Sound. You hear car horns and cheering coming from behind you, which ads a bit of realism.
