Cultúrlann Sweeney is pleased to be working in partnership with the IFI and Access Cinema to bring you the Bealtaine@Home series of films.

This fictional story about a Tour de France support rider, who secretly harbours a desire to wear the yellow jersey just once before his career is over, is set against the real circumstances of the 1998 event, which was dogged by doping scandals.

“★ ★ ★ ★ With a lot more going on than the average sporting drama, The Racer strikes a good balance between teasing out issues around doping and delivering on character-driven drama.” – Eye For Film

The Racer is a very solid and commendable exploration of a fascinating period in Tour de France.” – Film Ireland
