In the 70s, there was Merckx and there were the others. Ghislain Lambert was one of the others. This is his story, a quite simple one. The story of a modest Belgian bike racer. His greatest ambition in life? To become a champion. His greatest tragedy? Not having the legs his heart deserves.

Not number one in cycling, but number one in acting !
Once again, Benoît Poelvoorde proves to us that he is a great actor. He plays Ghislain Lambert, a second class professional cyclist whose role in the team is to support the leader. Poelvoorde makes the jump from comedy to drama and is able to play with our emotions. The movie shows us, in a very realistic manner, the "backstage" of professional cycling, and at the same time maintains its sense of humor. Don't worry, even if you're not into this sport, this movie will never bore you....If you enjoy Poelvoorde as an actor, I also recommend watching "Les convoyeurs attendent". Poelvoorde is never as good as he is when he plays common people.
