A selection of the best stage-race riders in the world head to France for the eight-day Paris-Nice 2014 cycling race and it promises to be one of the most action-packed and keenly fought contests in years.
The race will be made up of 8 stages and will cover a total distance of 1,447 kilometres. This documentary will follow the first major European stage race of the UCI World Tour season, which will see some of the World's best riders including Welshman and Sky's lead rider Geraint Thomas fighting for glory. Double Olympic track gold medallist Thomas is a strong contender to win the yellow jersey.
Darren Tudor, Head Coach Welsh Cycling said:"It's a great opportunity for people in Wales to watch our most successful male cyclist compete in one of the greatest stage races. Geraint was on great form in Paris-Nice, it will be great to watch all the action in Wales."
