Description


Episode 9: In this episode of Kilometre 0, Richard Moore speaks to American historian Christopher Thompson, author of Tour de France, a cultural history of the race which starts by examining how the race’s origins are rooted in a national crisis of confidence and masculinity in the wake of the Franco-Prussian war. The book also looks at the ways the Tour explains France itself.
