Love the Le Mans style start and the chucking of bikes into the river :D

    I saw this the other day, it's well funny - the commentary is good too

  • ITV should get him in for the Tour, he's much better than Phil and Paul!
  • the commentator sounds to me like one of the Batey brothers, can anyone confirm ?

    you are right, it is Norman Batey, was up at the cafe at Capheaton @ the weekend & one of the older lads up there reckoned it was him. Great video, I live round the corner from Wes Clayton's wife, i think i will pop round & ask if she has seen the video. {Wes died last year]
