Overcoming is a fascinating documentary that follows the Danish Cycling Team through the top cycling event in the sporting calendar - the Tour de France of 2004. We witness the team confront, and eventually overcome, a series of traumatic events, including personal tragedies that would stop most of us in our tracks. Bjarne Riis, the quiet yet passionate coach, acts as the dramatic focal point of this remarkable film.
