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.
A very different doco. Quite arty style following David Millars come back to pro cycling. Doesn't go down the usual route of using talking heads with lots of dialogue. It's mostly shot like a fly on the wall (or dashboard/bike) documentary with some voice overs by David Millar himself. I saw this at the cinema & it really worked on the big screen for me, may be better seen this way if you can. You get a real sense of the speed & drama of the peloton etc. The microphones pick up some great conversations between the riders & the language gets quite colourful, giving the film it's comedic moments.
