    NO coverage, i.e. TV that I can find.

    Full preview of the event here:

    180 riders from 9 countries...should be very interesting to watch, for real!

    Apparently it's going to be screened in a week or so - can't remember where I saw that or if it's on Eurosport or ITV

    it's a hard life if you don't weaken.

    The first couple were taken on Cold Newton Hill, the third on Newbold Road, approaching Burrough on the Hill and the 4th on Styegate Lane near Pickwell
  • One year I'll get across to this, but I always seem to have something on that weekend, plus it's a bit of a pain in the behind to get to from me.

    Just been watching some videos on youtube, with this one showing some good bits, particularly the off road bit mid-way through where one of the Rapha riders punctures.
