Radio 5 Cycling Programme

Postby pat1cp » Wed Oct 31, 2012 16:26 pm

Just giving everyone a heads up. Might be worth a listen, though I suspect it might turn out to be ill informed pifle.

I'll give it a chance though.

To be fair to Colin Murray (who isn't everyone's cup of tea) he tends to reserach his subject well. He did a Tour preview this year and on the whole his questions and comments showed a reasonable knowledge. Hopefully Simon Brotherton will have an input too as he is one of the better cycling broadcasters we have.

He's looking more and more weird the older he gets....

I agree with Pross, Murray is passionate about all sports and really gets in to it. Should be good :D

Well I listened to it live and thought it was excellent !!!!
That the BBC would be broadcasting a live show dedicated to cycling at all is almost
a dream come true in itself but the outcome was, for me, a big success.
Given also The Cycle Show on ITV4 during the summer the profile of cycling in the UK has
never been higher and for someone from my generation it's simply fantastic.
What with all the live racing coverage on Eurosport (HD this year for me) and ITV4's increasing
interest, it is difficult to see what cyclists and fans could possibly have to moan about.
Oh dear !! forgot about all that USPS cr*p. Oh well, can't have it all ways.
