Fascinated by the remarkable true story of Australians Sir Hubert Opperman, Ernie Bainbridge and Percy Osborne, and New Zealander Harry Watson as the first English speaking team to compete in the Tour de France, friends and avid cyclists Phil Keoghan and Ben Cornell decide to recreate the original, punishing route of the 1928 Tour de France.
Their goal is to do 5300 kilometres in 26 days up the Pyrenees and through the Alps, traversing insane inclines and treacherous tracks. Averaging 240 kilometres a day for 26 days, Phil and Ben traverse both the unforgiving mountains of the Pyrenees and the Alps, on original vintage steel racing bikes with no gears and marginal brakes.
