Het Scheldepeloton

A six-part human interest series about five young cyclists from Ghent who are fighting for the same dream together: to become professional cyclists. One by one they make their dream come true, but the road to fame is paved with many obstacles.

This documentary won 'De HA van Humo' for best TV-programme of the year in 2021. The report of the jury praises the programme’s integrity and sober approach that led it to this well deserved win: 

'The HA van Humo goes to a series that week after week encaptured and moved viewers. Through the power of the story, the purity of the testimonials and the finesse with which they were portrayed. A documentary about tragic crashes, haunting dark thoughts and pure tragedy. While never forgetting the warm friendship, that unique boyish enthousiasm and the beauty of cycling.' 

This production came into being with the support of Flanders Tax Shelter.

'Het Scheldepeloton’ op Canvas was hartverscheurende televisie over de romantiek en het risico van de koers.
