I am hoping that this is real and not some bogus nonsense...... I picked this up on my local try club website... any takers? Enter at your own peril image I am not connected with this lot at all....

This is a terrific opportunity and fun project for a fit cyclist that is “up” for riding different stages of the Tour de France. The film crew will follow our cyclist throughout and it will feel more like a documentary than a clinically filmed advert. Over the short week the cyclists’ enthusiasm, aspirations and personality will be highlighted.

Sports Castings are involved in many of the sports ads on TV. Please pass the information on this project around to people you know in your cycling circles.
