Tim Krabbé – Riding (2014) is an intimate portrait about Dutch writer and cyclist Tim Krabbé (Amsterdam, 1943).
Riding was inspired by Tim’s participation in the Tour of Flanders 2014 cyclo-tourist ride of 245 km. At the age of 71, Tim is still an active cyclist. His novel The Rider, first published in 1978 and translated into English in 2002, is considered to be “the best writing on the subjective experience of cycle-racing”.
In this short documentary we interweave Tim’s moving story with historical photos from his ‘first racing life’ and his participation in the Tour of Flanders, which symbolizes his ‘second racing life’.
Soigneur developed this documentary in collaboration with Faithful to the Subject, HelloHero and Etxeondo. The film is directed by Faithful to the Subject and joined by cameraman Nanko Goeting and editor Tim Roza. Kees Riphagen was responsible for the grading and Bart Kalkman for the sound-design.

PedalBXL, the Brussels bicycle messengers had three objectives on the ronde van Vlaanderen pre event race, to have fun, to ride the Omnium all the way and to get some media coverage.
There was no plan to stop along the way for Ename beers, to see a lot of respect or hatred in other riders eyes as they were passing them, to have way too much food in their frigo box on the omnium, and to obtain eternal pride from their other collegues at PedalBXL.
