The latest episode of Kilometre 0, supported by Science in Sport, looks at famous fathers and their cycling sons. In the field at this year's Giro d’Italia are several riders whose fathers were also professionals, including Moreno Moser of the Italian cycling dynasty, Erik Zabel’s son Rick, who is riding for BMC, and Team Sky’s Nicolas Roche, son of Stephen.

Is a famous name a blessing or a curse – a help or a hindrance? Richard Moore spoke to Moreno Moser, Rick Zabel and Nicolas Roche, plus Sir Dave Brailsford, the Sky principal, who was also inspired to take up cycling by his father.
