The hilarious and inspiring film - The Tour Baby! - chronicling filmmaker Scott Coady's amazing journey following the entire Tour de France, began its 2005 world tour in Ghazni, Afghanistan!

US troops who are die hard cyclists and big time pro cycling fans serving in Afghanistan have a hard time getting any miles or pro race coverage. One committed cyclist, Master Sergeant Pat Gleason, is finding ways to get his cycling fix. His wife Jill wrote to The Tour Baby! filmmaker Scott Coady to order a copy of the film for her cycling starved husband. In honor of Master Sergeant Gleason's service, Scott sent the soldier a free film and the soldier returned this photo of himself and the men of his mortar platoon, 3/116th Infantry Division, stationed in Ghazni, Afghanistan holding the prized film.

The Sergeant Gleason wrote that they are even managing to get some training in on an old stationary bike they have cobbled together.

The Tour Baby! premiered in Boulder, Colorado in February 2004 at a LAF benefit hosted by Davis Phinney. The audience of 900 plus ultra sophisticated cyclist from this Mecca of cycling laughed and cheered non-stop and audiences around the world have been laughing and cheering ever since.
