Cycling superstars Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani race up Mont Ventoux, the most daunting leg of the Tour de France. This momentous challenge, in 2000, ends in a historic battle of wounded pride and rancour.

In this powerful, sparely staged production, two actors pedal furiously on stationary racing bikes in a brutal contest against screened footage of the route. Their titanic uphill struggle traces the different trajectories of two spectacular falls from grace. Its split-second smooth delivery mirrors the discipline and isolation of professional cycling and the difference a split second can make.
