Champion of the mountain bike circuit Laurie (Charlotte Laurier) is, after ten years, still at the top of her game. At the start of a crucial race she falters for two seconds and loses. She is forced into early retirement by her boss but is allowed to keep the one thing she loves most; her bike. Now lost and alone outside the competition circuit, she is forced to fend for herself and find a new direction. Moving to Montreal she finds work as a bike courier, and soon impresses her colleagues with her electrifying speed and obsessive love of cycling. She meets Lorenzo (Dino Tavarone), who was himself a racing champion in his day (the 60s). For the first time, Laurie's knowledge and perceptions of cycling are questioned. Over time a friendship and an understanding develop between the ex-champions, and they even discover that they have similar tastes in women!
