Chris Froome - Cycling Under the Sea

With Tour de France mania hitting pretty much the whole of England and the first three stages of the tour (known as the Grand Depart) taking place here, it comes as perfect timing to show you this rather brilliant short film that Jaguar, Team Sky and Eurostar have put together called Cycling Under The Sea. Never before has anyone cycled from the UK to France until now.

2013 Tour de France Winner and rider for Team Sky was up for the challenge to become the first man to cycle through the service tunnel between the two lines of the Channel Tunnel while creating this rather fabulous shortfilm. The story plays out that on a journey to France, Froome ditches his Jaguar team cars, takes a bike off the roof and decides to cycle the length of the tunnel.

It’s a really nice film and well worth a watch. Below the film is the making of the piece which too is worth looking at.
