Summer, 1998: the opening stages of the Tour de France are relocated to Ireland. Belgian rider Dom Chabol (played by Belgian TV star Louis Talpe) has for the last 20 years been one of the best Domestiques (support riders) — a sacrificial role, setting pace, blocking wind and providing support to enable the team's sprinter to ride on to victory; winning is not an option. But Chabol harbors a desire to wear the prestigious yellow winner's jersey, just once before his career is over. Secret doping, team rivalry and a little romance fuel the exhilarating action and dark comedy that drives THE RACER to pack an adrenaline-filled punch, right to the finish line. (Note adapted from Cork International Film Festival.) Official Selection, 2020 SXSW, Cork and Tallinn Black Nights film festivals.
