Dunno if this quite belongs here, but I know a lot of Pro Race-rs have gripes about Eurosport.

I recently took part in a survey for Eurosport and they sent some of the results via e-mail, along with prize winners etc.

What's interesting to note is cycling's relationship with Eurosport. Clearly this is good for us fans going foward into a new season, meaning (hopefully) more coverage of races.

Finally, Carlton Kirby - International Expert?
