    Tour De Pharmacy

    ★★★½

    When a HBO mockumentary is released lampooning a fictional 1982 drug-fuelled Tour de France (four days after the current World Champion was disqualified during the current Tour), you can’t help but laugh in uneasy contemplation of both the timing, and whether it flies too closely to the burn.

    Taking place during the ‘iconic’ (but sadly fictional) 82’ Tour where all but 5 riders were disqualified for doping and caught bribing UCI president Kevin Bacon, we follow a motley crew of…
