That was the TdF that got me back into cycling! I weighed 16 st 5 lbs and couldn't walk up a flight of stairs without stopping to catch my breath. Then one day in early July 1989, I got home from work and flopped in front of the TV, Channel 4 were showing the Tour and I got hooked straight away. I went out and bought a bike a couple of weeks later and the rest is history. Actually, that is history too, but you know what I mean!
Here I am 21 years later, still overweight, but I'm a pretty fit fatty now!
I've forgotten what the cover looks like already. It was interesting to see the footage again, I think it would've been better if they'd left some of the original commentary though- Phil Ligget's after-the-fact commentary on these DVDs doesn't really work, I expect he was stuck in a studio with 20 years worth of highlights to commentate on and no chance of stopping for a beer until he was done.
