I am in Italy on a weeks holiday and have just checked into the hotel and on Sky there'a bike channel! Why can't we have a bike channel at home? Would it be possible to get this back home? Could we not all petition sky for dedicated channel. After all they sponsor the sport.

    Not everybody has a Sky contract or dish so people wanting to watch it would be paying for it which goes against the grain for some people.
  • Do you think that they'd be enough content for a dedicated channel? ITV do a ctcling show but it is extremely poor.

    Eurosport show all the important races so I don't think we need anything more. I think they said they have 800 hours of live coverage each year.

    You also get the key track cycling events.
