It's the only show on FTA tv that deals with cycling and while I didn't see the "rego" edition it does often feature many issues that are important to the sport and cycling in general. It regularly has major players on and more tellingly, insightful comments from very capable, well informed women who are contributing through various cycling bodies. It will by necessity include topics such as rego because unlike us BNV afficionados who are all knowing, it also broadcasts to those who may not be aware of the issues and pitfalls in such things.
Following the sport as long as I have, it is noteworthy too that local cycling commentary, general and sporting related, apart from print media, is still in its infancy. I'm a big fan of Tomalaris because of his long support for cycling and while he may come across at times seemingly not as we would like, he has championed the sport via SBS when no one would touch it. It will take time to build up an articulate professional commentariat that can provide the in depth coverage across all aspects of the sport and particularly cycling as legitimate transport. Cycling while now a mainstream pastime is still to gain legitimacy and only reaches a fraction of the coverage that ball sports attain. Hopefully similar shows will develop and offer a multitude of voices to advance cycling. Oth the development of suitable presenters to call races has undergone a steady process that has found confident interesting local talent that now outperforms the traditional voices of cycling.
