Kilometre 0 is the official start, after the départ fictif, for each day’s stage of the Tour de France. It is also a new show from The Cycling Podcast, taking listeners behind the scenes at the Tour and along for the ride on the world’s biggest bike race. KM0 will be released every weekday morning for the three weeks of the Tour. In Thursday’s fourth episode Richard Moore meets the Eritreans – the fans who appear at the start every morning and one of the two Eritrean riders in the race, Merhawi Kudus. We also hear from Douglas Ryder, team principal at MTN-Qhubeka, the first African team to ride the Tour de France.
