Theamazingrace’s Phil Keoghan had a story he wanted to tell, in film. But he had some problems: all the people involved in the story had passed away and there was little footage from that time. His solution? Ride across France on an early 20th-century bike with his friend Ben Cornell. The story he wanted to tell was that of Harry Watson, a cyclist from near Keoghan’s hometown of Lincoln, New Zealand. In 1928, Watson rode in the Tour de France with three Australians as part of the first English-speaking team to do la Grande Boucle. Watson’s story was mostly unknown. Even his son, at 86, didn’t know the story until Keoghan told him. Some parts of Keoghan’s film do have the feel of his reality show. Things move quickly. There are wrong turns by the two riders and mishaps. But it is an inventive way to delve into the past. Keoghan is passionate about cycling and his subject, which all comes through Leride.
