Ten days before the Giro d'Italia started, Conor Dunne became a father for the first time. Having missed out on all the grand tours last season when he was with the soon-to-implode Aqua Blue team, he didn't want to miss the opportunity to ride the Giro d'Italia. But it meant leaving his newborn baby and partner behind. In this episode of Kilometre 0, we ask riders and managers about parenthood in the peloton. Kilometre 0 is supported by Hansgrohe.

episode 3: Clear Eyes, Full Heart - The Filippo Simeoni Story | Kilometre 0

Filippo Simeoni wishes his career was remembered for his stage wins in the Vuelta a España or his Italian national championship title in 2008. Instead, as of a day in late July 2004, he became synonymous with an incident that had nothing to do with winning races and instead caused him to lose some of his faith in humanity.  Simeoni had previously testified against Lance Armstrong’s coach and doctor, Michele Ferrari, and now Armstrong made him pay...

episode 4: La Girina | Kilometre 0

At a race that glories in its traditions and sometimes its dogmas, Giusy Virelli, a 34-year-old from an Italian cycling backwater in the deep south, is something of a trailblazer. If Mauro Vegni, the race director, is the architect of the “Corsa Rosa”, Virelli has become one of its key project managers, the most important “Girina” on the race...

episode 4: A trip to Girona to meet Mitch Docker

For this episode of The Cycling Podcast Lionel Birnie travelled to Girona to meet Mitch Docker. Melbourne-born Docker rides for EF Education First and is about to embark on his 12th season in the elite pro peloton. He came to Europe in 2009 when he got a contract with the Skil-Shimano team, then moved to Orica-GreenEdge, where he spent six years, before heading to EF Education First. In that time he's evolved from sprinter to lead-out man to Classics specialist to road captain...

episode 5: Hail, Cesare! | Kilometre 0

On long, flat – dare we say it, slightly boring – days like the tenth stage of the Giro d’Italia you will often see the peloton led for kilometre after kilometre by one rider from the team of the dominant sprinter. On Tuesday’s stage to Modena, it was Cesare Benedetti of Bora-Hansgrohe who sat on the front for what seemed like hours, the peloton bunched up behind him.  In the end it was all for nothing; the team’s sprinter, Pascal Ackerman, crashed heavily on the finishing straight...

episode 6: The vegan pro | Kilometre 0

Adam Hansen of Lotto-Soudal follows a plant-based diet. Being lactose intolerant he cut out dairy products years ago and stopped eating meat a couple of seasons back. But is a meat-free diet compatible with the rigours of professional cycling? We hear Hansen talk about his reasons for following a vegan diet, how he feels and whether it's difficult to get the food he needs when he's at a grand tour and his team doesn't have its chef...
