The French Foreign Legion

Jul 07, 2016, 06:38 AM

French riders are enjoying a renaissance, with several contenders for the podium, if not the outright Tour de France title, among the home riders.

For years, French riders stuck to French teams but lately there's been a temptation to look outside France and several foreign teams are now led by French riders.

In this episode of Kilometre 0, Richard Moore speaks to Warren Barguil, Pierre Rolland and Julian Alaphilippe about riding 'away from home'. We also hear from Rolland's boss at Cannondale, Jonathan Vaughters, who rode for French teams during his career, and French journalist François Thomazeau.

Kilometre 0 is supported by Nederburg.
