A coffee and a small Danish.

Sean Kelly won Paris Nice 7 years in a row, so he should be awarded Denmark to do with as he wishes.
No need. We annexed that small corner of the Côte d'Azur that will forever Ireland be, the Col they call d'Èze. As well as Kelly's seven-year run of wins in the race between 1982 and 1988, between 1981 and 1989 it was always an Irish rider - Kelly (five times) or Roche (four times) - who won the final day TT on that little hill.

Who needs Denmark when you own a hill on the French Riviera? Property prices there probably mean you could buy Denmark, if you really wanted to.
 
With this important information and Dan being the cousin of Nicolas Roche, and therefore Stephen being the great uncle of Guillaume, what is the relationship of them all to Remy Roch(as)e?

The closest I got is that Rochas' GF is called Alice, and if he lives next door to her, then that could lead us to Chris Norman. Guillaume grew up in Norman-dy, Norman co-wrote Kevin Keegan's minor hit single, and since Keegan has Irish ancestry, there might have been some kind of naughty interaction between someone from his family and one from the Roche dynasty many years ago. Also referring back to the Smokie song, Alexis Roche, Stephen's other son, is currently 24 years old.
 
I'm going to be boring, and assume that G. Martin's father just happens to be called Daniel, but isn't actully the Daniel Martin.
And I'm guessing his mother's name being 'Guyonnet' would explain where that name came from in the graphics today. Though, it wouldn't explain why it was included. Do the graphics people at TA think French name work like Spanish names, with both the father's and the mother's name? Or has he actually officially added it?

I can't remember seeing it before either, but according to the UCI website, it appears to be his official name now.

I only see evidence of a crash in one of these pictures, clearly they’re just doing their best to make the sport safer

Now that would be a conspiracy theory: The monitor acted like a magnet, and caused her to crash!

Bananas and kiwis.

Sorry, those are not the possible answers.
And also, don't give the UCI ideas! Who know what they'll ban next...?

Number one.

What is my prize?

It's "A" not "Number one".
But you answered correctly, so here's your prize:

:coffee:

That's a lame prize. I get free coffee at work. I want something else.
