Kilometre 0 – Zone Technique
The Tour de France is a huge logistical operation, packing up a small town every evening and moving a couple of hundred kilometres to set up the following day.
The Zone Technique, or technical zone, is a large area near the finish line where the heart of the Tour beats and where the broadcasters work. There are dozens of trucks, 60 kilometres of cable and hundreds of people all essential to broadcasting the Tour around the world.
In this episode of Kilometre 0, we meet Frank Jacobs who helps to construct and break down the Zone Technique every day as it moves around France.
Kilometre 0 is supported by Nederburg.
