Last year I put out the video above. It’s had 99,419 views on YouTube. It will soon be my first vid to break through 100,000 views.
Billed as the ‘Best Tour de France footage ever filmed?’ it’s a collection of rushes from the IMAX movie with the production name of ‘Brainpower’ but which morphed into ‘Wired to Win’ when it was released to IMAX cinemas.
The YouTube footage is just a couple of minutes of fuzzy stuff, there’s nine minutes of higher quality material on the Quickrelease.tv podcast site, on iTunes here.
The rushes footage isn’t from a trailer, it contains movie editing timecodes.
It also contains rider footage that never made the movie. Guess who was cut?
