Synopsis

On Sunday 22 July, Bradley Wiggins became the first British rider ever to win the Tour de France. It was the culmination of years of hard work and dedication and a vision begun with the creation of Team Sky. This is the inside story of that journey to greatness. Now fully updated to include the victorious 2012 Tour, 'Sky's the Limit' tells the story of Bradley Wiggins's epic ride to become the first British winner in the Tour's history. Dave Brailsford is the mastermind behind the phenomenal success of the British track cycling team which dominated the Beijing Olympics in 2008 and then again at London 2012. Road cycling is a very different ball game, though. It's what the serious cycling fans watch and it's where heroes and villains are made. It is a sport that is rooted in mainland Europe - a land that is, in so many literal, metaphorical and cultural ways, foreign to Great Britain. Until recently, British victories in the Tour could be counted on the fingers of a mitten and no Briton had seriously challenged for the maillot jaune - the yellow jersey of overall winner.

Brailsford's plan was to change that and 'Sky's the Limit' follows the gestation and birth of a brand new road racing team all the way to their epic victory in 2012. With exclusive behind-the-scenes access and interviews, 'Sky's the Limit' follows the management and riders as they embark on their journey to conquer one the most gruelling races in world sport.
