EN - Seasoned ‘super-domestique’, Dom Chabol, experiences the most dramatic three days of his life as he faces the end of his time with his team, the end of his career - and perhaps the end of his life - at the opening Irish stages of the notorious 1998 Tour de France, known as the ‘Tour du Dopage’. Hope comes in the form of dynamic young Irish medical student, Lynn Brennan - or does it?
