TIME TRIAL

Finlay Pretsell

Synopsis

Using pioneering filming techniques, bespoke vehicles and on-bike cameras, TIME TRIAL offers a radical new insight into the world of professional cycling through the eyes of David Millar, the only British rider to have won all of the Tour de France jerseys. We experience the euphoria of the race, but also the tedium in what is Millar’s last encounter with the Tour de France. TIME TRIAL shows just how far a man will go in his will to win.
