ESPN 30 for 30 Vol IV - Lance - Part 1

On Saturday night, May 30, Sharon, Jack and I watched part 1 of the ESPN 30 for 30 Lance. This is the fourth film in volume IV of ESPN's 30 for 30 documentary series. 

Although I have fallen behind in recent years, I have really enjoyed Volumes 1, 2 and 3 of ESPN's 30 for 30. The first 30 for 30 ran more than ten years ago in October of 2009.  An episode guide for Volume 1 is here; my ranking of those films is here. An episode guide for Volume 2 is here. In fall of 2011, ESPN ran a series of ESPN Films that continued the spirit of 30 for 30. A list of those film is here. An episode guide for Volume 3 is here. I will post an episode guide for volume four in the future.

In the early 2000s, Sharon, Jack and I passionately followed Lance and the Tour de France.  Sharon and I read both of his books in 2004: It's Not About the Bike, My Journey Back to Life and Every Second Counts.  Over the years, I have continued to watch parts of the Tour de France running on the treadmill; I love the scenery.

I will post some thoughts on the documentary and Lance with my post about part 2.
