Re: hour record.

2 May 2015 - 8:19pm
Hi,
By Wiggo's own admission he has never won a one day race
He is good at TT's but how is he on the day over 60 mins
I fear that a disappointment here will play heavy for 2016 as he says I will attempt once..................

Chapeaux Alex!

Re: hour record.

2 May 2015 - 5:28pm
Woohoo.

Although as Alex said - if wig go is doing 20 minute blocks of 55kmh at the moment he's going to set a huge record.

Re: Tour de Yorkshire

30 April 2015 - 8:36am
Bit silly timing too. May day bank holiday weekend is just so full of events. If I could be in three places at once, I'd still not be able to visit all the events that I'd like to. (Come join me on Saturday's Lynnsport to Hunstanton charity ride in wellies raising money for RNLI or Monday's Cambridge to Reach Ride!)

Tour de Yorkshire

30 April 2015 - 2:33am
Yes ... great. But the name of the race sucks. Come on ASO ... this is Britain and it should be the Tour of Yorkshire.

Hi,
This does not surprise me, not particularly her but pro's in general.
This seems to be her typical style unless you have another.

Yes I see its 3.99 for twelve months on the web.
Can you get it any other way, paying that is
Sky want 30 / month
Ta,
Just checking you realise that Eurosport online is £3.99 per month for a 12 month subscription (or £5.99 pm with no subscription length, AFAIK you can stop & start it on a month by month basis). It isn't totally clear from the way you've phrased it.

Re: Whatever happened to Nicole Cooke

I've just finished reading Nicole's autobiography - The Breakaway. It seems she suffered from constant knee problems throughout her career and I think this may have been a factor in her early retirement. Definitely worth a read.

I pay for the web broadcast 3.99. Then with a cheap Apple tv device I can stream it to my tv. As long as you have fast broadband it looks fine.

I love Eurosport because they show TONS of cycling! I can watch it on TV (though 'buffering' can be a problem here) my PC and my phone! Also you can watch most events for many days afterwards, in full or fastforward through it.

Of the other sports they show you get a fair amount of tennis and they are showing the world snooker at moment and also seems to be some golf, alpine sports seem to get a lot of coverage and motor racing and motorcycling too but typically its not sort of F1, but cycling Yes! they cover a lot.

I only subscribe to it because I want to watch the cycling events and for these it is great value; Generally its off the beaten path compared to sky; you wont be getting football or cricket for instance

have you watched it yet?? Amstel Gold race today! I cant complain that it costs me 3.99 a month for Eurosport; less than a couple of bottles of Amstel!

Re: Don't forget you know who - Sunday

17 April 2015 - 1:46pm
Been avoiding this thread and the cycling press until I found a way of watching it - the full race is now on YouTube, which also means that you can skip the adverts [emoji6]
