Film - ‘Time Trial’

TIME TRIAL - Coming Soon


TIME TRIAL is a new feature length documentary film from director Finlay Pretsell, coming soon from Cycling Films / Scottish Documentary Institute

TIME TRIAL takes us into the final races of cyclist David Millar’s career, leading up to his last encounter with the Tour de France. We go inside the peloton, we’re pushed up impossible climbs and forced down rapid descents, we lie alongside him in his hotel room in post-race agony. We ride in the support car, the source of comfort, supplies and fleeting relief from the cold. And we know that every mile travelled is a mile closer to the end. TIME TRIAL reveals how the human spirit is driven by forces deeper than success and glory.

Finlay Pretsell is a BAFTA award-winning filmmaker who once set out on the long road to becoming a professional cyclist. He has directed six shorts and produced many others. Most recently he produced the feature film Norfolk for BBC Films, BFI, Creative England. Time Trial is his first feature.
