Dave McKenzie is a former pro cyclist, a coach, a cycling commentator on SBS, he runs cycling tours across europe and is a true aussie legend in the sport of cycling.
We sat down with the man who is usually the one asking the questions to get an insight into his career as a pro, his career behind the scenes with SBS and his insight into the cycling world.
McKenzie won the Australian national road race title in 1998. And his biggest victory came on stage 7 of the 2000 Giro d'Italia where he rode to victory after a 164 km solo breakaway - an epic story that he breaks down in this episode.
