Bummed - no WCP Tour DVD this year

Not sure if it's economics or technology changes or what, but I just heard World Cycling Productions won't be selling a Tour de France DVD this year. First time in maybe 25 years.

That bums me out. I loved curling up on the sofa with my wife in the dead of winter and watching the race and being transported to summer in France.
