This is not a 100,000-word, minute-by-minute, blow-by-blow account of the 2011 Tour de France.
This is not the story of Cadel Evans.
This is not the story of Alberto Contador, Andy Schleck, or Bradley Wiggins.
And it’s not even the story of Mark Cavendish.
(Although he is in it quite a lot.)
This is the story of the lesser-known heroes; the Johnny Hoogerlands, the Thomas Voecklers, the hitchhikers, the maniac press drivers, Norbert Dentressangle and the greatest ever Tour de France*.
Ned was there. And this is what he saw. That is all.
In this 20,000-word digital short, ITV’s Ned Boulting, author of How I Won the Yellow Jumper, takes an honest and idiosyncratic look at the unforgettable 2011 Tour de France, when Mark Cavendish won the Green Jersey.
