Olympic MTB races hit the Beeb

For all of those who’ve been wondering (ourselves included) whether the MTB races at the Athens Olympics will get a decent amount of coverage on the BBC, wonder no longer. BM member of long standing, the ever-vigilant Notoriously Bad Typist, points us in the direction of a couple of PDFs of schedule information tucked away in a locked filing cabinet of the BBC website (yes, probably in an unlit basement behind a sign reading “Beware of the leopard”). And there upon them are healthy chunks of coverage booked in for Friday’s women’s and Saturday’s men’s racing.

So get yourself near a telly or set the video for 8.50-11am on Friday 27 August for the women and 10-11.30am on Saturday 28 August for the men. And big up the Beeb!
