Cody Westheimer Pens New Theme For Tour de France

Film Music Magazine • August 15, 2011

With credits that include National Lampoon’s Cattle Call, TLC’s Little People Big World and the star-powered and soon to be released Conception, composer Cody Westheimer has composed a Hollywood-inspired theme that was used for this year’s Tour de France.

Westheimer is well known for his stylistic versatility, scoring everything from quirky indies, dramas and inspiring documentary films to epic video game and trailer soundtracks. In addition to the main title for the live and prime-time shows, his Tour de France music package includes several underscore tools that played daily under the legendary voices of Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwin throughout the 21 day stage race.

Westheimer collaborated with landmark sports television producer David Michaels to create the theme.

I’m trying to get the name of the instrumental music played at the end of the stages as they recap each day’s events. Do you have any idea as to the name of that inspirational song?
