How it all started

We’ve watched a lot of cycling on ITV over the years. Cycling is lovely, and fascinating, and compelling. But increasingly, we’ve found ourselves growing restless during the race commentary, waiting for Phil & Paul to get it over with, so we can go back to what we’re really interested in: Ned pushing a mike into some exhausted rider’s face, or standing slightly sunburnt in front of a mountain range, or climbing onto his bike to be Chris’s straight man in another Segway-filmed ‘How it Works’ piece.

We realised during the Tour of Britain last year that our passion was more than just a phase, and wrote this to explain ourselves. We are Ned’s fans. Join us: this is for us.
