Wall of Geraardsbergen turned into movie drive-in for “The Racer” premiere

The Wall of Geraardsbergen, one of the greatest challenges in Flemish cycling, was the venue for a remarkable film premiere on Monday night.  Two hundred guests were invited onto the yellow carpet – a reference to the yellow jersey worn by the winner of the Tour de France.  All were there for the premiere of the Flemish-Irish co-production of “The Racer”.

Guests watched the film from the seats of their cars after the Wall of Geraardsbergen was turned into a drive-in cinema.  “The Racer” loosely relates the tale of the 1998 Tour de France that was dogged by allegations of mass doping.
