    Kilometre 0 – Danish Dynamite, part one

    Kilometre 0 – Danish Dynamite, part one

    The long-awaited Grand Départ in Denmark gets underway with Friday's opening time trial and Copenhagen, a city that celebrates the bicycle, has never been more ready.

    Danish cycling is enjoying another wave of success with the likes of Mads Pedersen, Jonas Vingegaard, Kasper Asgreen among the ten home riders on the start list.

    But, like most cycling stories, the history of Danish cycling is complicated. This two-part episode of Kilometre 0 borrows its title from a brilliant book about Denmark's football team that took the world by storm in the 1980s, and tells the story of the rise, fall and rebirth of Danish cycling.

    In this part, Lionel talks to Brian Nygaard, who worked closely with Denmark's only Tour de France champion, Bjarne Riis. Of course, there is a heavy asterisk against Riis's 1996 Tour win because it was fuelled by EPO and came in the middle of the sport's darkest days – although the depths of skulduggery were not truly brought to light until the Festina affair two years later. As CSC team manager Riis was then a key player in the next big doping scandal to blight Tour – the Operacion Puerto blood-doping investigation which forced his team leader Ivan Basso out of the 2006 Tour on the eve of the opening time trial. Brian had a front row seat for that.

Lo-key podcast for TDF insights

First off, I’m a huge fan of Mitch and his podcast but even he cannot raise the bar on the content and organization of this podcast. It could be improved by finding a quiet place to record rather than a bar/restaurant, and preparing their content. If you like off the cuff responses/reaction to the daily stage events then you might be satisfied but it doesn’t come close to The Move. Once you get over the flavor of Lance like you’ve swallowed your gastric juices, the insights and banter between Johan, Lance, and George make this podcast seem amateurish.

Fantastico

I like the word play and metaphors used often to describe the events gong on in cycling. The intelligence sometimes conveyed by all involved is appreciated, especially from a bunch of fellow alcoholics.... Thanks! Chiro is way too Nationalist, and rarely says anything of substance, no? Ah, but maybe he speaks for the sands of time.... . Lionel has an excellent robot voice! I miss Lionel being at the Giro. Send Italy your old Super 8 cameras! Queen stage? More like Queens of the Stone Age Stage.... Chiro you should be ashamed of your country. I am so saddened and sorry for the passing of Richard Moore. My condolences. He is and will be greatly missed.
