In this episode of Kilometre 0, we speak to three filmmakers who had the tricky task of making a film during the 2020 'Covid' Tour de France.
The result is Enter the Slipstream, which debuts on US streaming service Peacock, part of NBC Sports, tomorrow (Saturday, July 1).
Lionel Birnie spoke to director Ted Youngs, producer Matt Rogers and story producer Alexis Steinman about the filmmaking process, how Covid changed the story and how Enter the Slipstream is the ultimate tale of perseverance for the riders, the EF Pro Cycling team and the filmmakers themselves.
Kilometre 0 at the 2023 Tour de France will be for Friends of the Podcast subscribers. The next episode will be Laura Meseguer's interview with Joseba Beloki, the Basque rider who finished on the podium at the Tour de France three times and crashed in spectacular fashion on the run-in to Gap on Bastille Day during the 2003 Tour.
