  • Watching that now. Not seen much yet but that first cyclist is a fucking twat.

  • Only 9 pages of comments on it already..

  • I thought it was weird nobody had said anything...

  • It was all hush hush until you blew it. Now what will the neighbours say?

  • The floodlit cyclocross race from Diegem starts in 10 minutes, link below has a great picture and is not geo-restricted (at least not in the UK).­html

  • top shout

  • I'm enjoying this!

  • Not TV but Jeremy Vine on Radio 2 now is talking about train fare rises and cycling, and is looking for cyclists who ride a long way to work - they're trying to find the person who rides the furthest.

  • Anyone know if/when the track worlds is on TV at all?

  • The world’s best track cyclists are in the Belarusian capital of Minsk for the 2013 UCI Track World Championships and you can watch extensive coverage on BBC TV from February 20-24­ling-uci-track-world-championships-2013-­live-on-bbc-tv/

    "The GB squad in Minsk will include Olympic gold medalists Jason Kenny, Phil Hindes" - Team Germany&Britain. I wonder if they ever mention the war?

  • ^having worked in Germany (with Germans) then yes. I was at one point blamed for the firebombing of Dresden. These were all Germans studying for their doctorates so not exactly thick so was a little bit surprised.

    I did point out that the war ended 30 yrs before I was born so I didn't have much to do with it. Then in faltering German I suggested that a 'top trumps' of war atrocities wasn't goign to end well (for them at least) was it..

  • oof!

  • Quick one, anyone know of a cycling/listing site, that has listings for cycling (live and highlights), I'm looking to take the hassle out of setting up the sky+ as the planner only goes a week or two into the future.

    Had a look at, but again the listings are only a week or so in advance.

    any suggestions.

    many thanks

  • the sport on the box site on hippys post ^^ seems OK

  • is it possible to record anything via the red button?

  • If on freeview, try recording channel 301, otherwise you need to know the channel number the red button feed is being broadcast on and record that channel.

  • I've set up series record for the worlds. It's all on BBC HD channel. Plenty of daily coverage as well.

  • Yeah lots of it on the BBC over the next few days. Anyone know of a decent pub that might show it on the weekend ? Or would LMNH be showing it ?

  • Fully aware this is on BBC but it still grinds me that the UCI youtube channel trailer says in massive letters "FOR FREE AROUND THE WORLD IN EVERY COUNTRY", yet when you try and watch it live on youtube you get told its geo restricted.

  • Criterium International highlights on ITV4 now

  • Thanks for the heads up on this.

  • Did Eurosport show the first day? ITV just showed the finish and there's no stage 1 on tivo from Eurosport.

  • I dont know, I am just looking at ITV4 on the web, I dont have a TV.

  • Criterium on Eurosport at 11 if you missed it
