Sleek drama offering a glimpse behind the scenes of the professional cycling world.
Set in Ireland in summer 1998, during the opening stages of Le Tour de France, where Belgian rider Dom Chabol has been one of the best “Domestiques” (support riders) on the Tour for the last 20 years - a sacrificial role which sets the pace, blocks wind, and provides support to enable the team’s sprinter to victory. When he is unceremoniously dropped from the team he has dedicated his life to, he starts to accept the idea of civilian life, until a massive doping error knocks another teammate off the Tour and Dom is thrown back in the saddle.
“A morality tale with intelligence and style and a muscular performance from Louis Talpe.” ~ Freda Cooper, The People’s Movies
