Eurosport is to introduce a monthly series of intimate sporting portraits called Sports Insiders on 12 March as part of its Spring Collection.

The 26 and 52-minute shows will air from March to June and will travel first to Gran Canaria in Spain to join the professional Tinkoff-Saxo cycling team during its first preparation camp for the 2014 season and offer an insight into the dynamics of a UCI World Tour cycling team.

The remaining shows in the Spring Collection take viewers to Brazil in May, home of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, to present a view of the football culture in the favelas of Rio ahead of the global competition this summer.

Back to Europe in June, the show will follow US actor and racing driver Patrick Dempsey as he returns to tackle the infamous Le Mans 24 Hour Race for the third time.

The Winter Collection of Sports Insider shows will start in September.
