    If it's anything like BBC's coverage of the Worlds, the big talking point will how Cav will still win, despite Wiggins' ultimate sacrifice in the service of Froome.

    The amatuer presenter trying to ride the Arenberg Forest is quite fun (and scary for those of us heading to RVV :( )

    I always think that P-R makes a good starter race for people who previously only think of the Tour de France when road cycling is mentioned. Seeing riders going along at 25mph plus riding flimsy looking bikes on a track most people wouldn't drive down in a 4x4 adds to the mystique of the sport and is the sort of thing that can get people talking. A BBC style 'pleb' style introduction is probably a good thing.

    The Arenberg Forest isn't on the route of the Ronde Van Vlaanderen...
