Has anyone given this a go? I've been really enjoying it. I loved the Eddy Merckx interview, adn will definitely be calling Eddy by his first name, now that I've seen him on the telly and all...

I thought the very first edition was pretty naff, I missed the second one and have enjoyed the last two.

They seem to be taking a lot of criticism elsewhere on this, and other forums from people who only want to see what they are interested in, but as cycling is a pretty broad subject, I think the programme makers are trying hard.

Not too sure about having LMNH as the studio, but I guess it's a little more interesting than some tiny anonymous room somewhere.

They're doing ok with it aren't they? I like Grham Little's presenting a lot. One thing I do enjoy about it being filmed in LMNH is nerdishly trying to bike spot in the background. Some of the stuff that's on display in the cafe looks really tasty.

Graham Obree said a line about having to do what you think is impossible when he was on the sofa that really stuck with me.
