The ambush

Jul 13, 2017, 08:14 AM

This episode of Kilometre 0 tells the story of Jean-François Bernard's only day in the yellow jersey. After Bernard Hinault's retirement, he was hailed as the next big thing and after a brilliant performance in the time trial on Mont Ventoux he looked in good shape to win the Tour. But on the road to Villard-de-Lans, Charly Mottet and his Système-U team-mates, Stephen Roche, the eventual Tour winner, and others had different ideas. This is the story of the ambush.
