In september 2021 the city of Leuven in Belgium organizes the World Road Cycling Championships. In cooperation with the city of Leuven Lode Desmet will make a documentary in which the track of the race is presented to the world. The film will be broadcast internationally in the weeks before the championships.
Lode Desmet lives in the old city center of Leuven himself. For a whole year he will cycle along the hilly track, every day, or night, in all kinds of weather - through the four seasons, and sun, rain, snow, or fog. To make beautiful images, and to talk to the people who just like him live will have the privilege of seeing the championship riders pass by just under their noses.
Every Sunday, his son of nine, Artuur, will be joining him.
