TIME TRIAL gives us an exhilarating and terrifying look at the last races of cyclist David Millar up to his last encounter with the Tour de France. A sensory ride through the thrill and hardship of professional cycling. We are hurtled off a hillside, details blurring like watercolours. The euphoria and the fatigue, the highs and the lows. It's as if it were ourselves struggling through the bumpy roads of France. David bluntly and fearlessly narrates his last season in the saddle, intimate and immediate, along with the intricate relationships of cyclist, road crew, fellow competitors, manic fans, and the media circus surrounding it all. TIME TRIAL brings us very close to David Millar and uncovers how the human spirit is driven by a force that goes deeper than success and glory.
