ONE SUN­DAY IN PARIS, SBS One, 8.55pm

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Saturday -

THIS time last year, all the noise was about Andy Sch­leck. In this, Sch­leck’s Leop­ard Trek team­mate Stu­art O’Grady says they knew it would be dif­fi­cult go­ing into Tour de France 2011, but were fully com­mit­ted to try­ing to win. Even­tual win­ner Cadel Evans (pic­tured) says his BMC Rac­ing team went in ‘‘ well pre­pared’’. This fol­lows the race, stage by stage, and in­cludes in­ter­views with Evans (who lis­tened to Paul Kelly songs be­fore the time-trial), Sch­leck and the great Eddy Mer­ckx. Good in­sight that re­in­forces what a hard race it is, phys­i­cally and men­tally.
