The first look at Netflix’s upcoming docuseries on the Tour de France certainly seems accurate: I feel stressed just from the 2-minute preview of cyclists crying and coaches screaming.

That’s not surprising, given the short memory that must be necessary to put your body through the immense pain and exhaustion of what the trailer’s voiceover calls “the world’s toughest race.”

The trailer debuted during a keynote from Netflix Co-CEO Greg Peters during Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress this week. Escape Collective tweeted out the trailer on Tuesday, which you can watch below.

The series is titled Tour de France: Unchained in the U.S., and will likely air this summer, shortly before the 2023 race kicks off.

Runtime: 2 minutes
