Is it still possible to win Tour de France without using doping? A Dutch cycling team picks up the glove during the 100th edition of this world-famous race. The Argos-Shimano team is followed incinema-vérité style during their revenge against the old guard, who corrupted the sport of cycling for years by using doping. Will this new batch collectively cross the finish line in Paris? The makers register all candid conversations between stages, as well as the decisive sprints, where blood, sweat and tears are shed profusely.
