Jul 14, 2016, 05:57 AM

This episode of Kilometre 0 looks at French cycling, much maligned after a generation in the doldrums and enduring 31 years of hurt since Bernard Hinault last home win at the Tour de France.

But there have been signs of a revival for a few years now, the idea that the French are training luddites rejecting the advances of sports science is a myth

Hear from Sky's sports director Nicolas Portal, FDJ coach, and brother of Thibaut Pinot, Julien Pinot, and the last Frenchman to win on Bastille Day (in 2005), David Moncoutié.

Kilometre 0 is supported by Nederburg.
