From a BAFTA winning filmmaker, comes the unbelievable story of cyclist Greg LeMond who came back from the brink of death after a hunting accident to win the closest race in the history of the Tour de France.

With innate talent, an earnest, ethical approach to competition, and boy-next-door charm, Greg LeMond was a wizard on the steady, gruelling climbs of the Tour de France. He propelled himself to recognition with wins for the French team Renault-Elf and then with La Vie Claire where he unexpectedly won the Tour De France in 1986. Alex Holmes’ poignant documentary makes space for LeMond to share a deeply personal journey through trauma and the twists and turns of fame and performance amidst immense public pressures. This is a resounding reminder that LeMond represents the world of athletics at its best, and replays one of the greatest comeback stories in sports history.
