The hour-long special gives the Manxman the opportunity to talk through each of his Tour de France stage wins as well revealing his chagrin at the incessant doping scandals that have dogged the sport.

BRITS IN BELGIUM

Four Britons took to the start line on Friday for the Scheldecross cyclo-cross race in Antwerp.

Roger Hammond, David Fletcher, Ian Bibby and Jonathan McEvoy finished 29th, 31st, 37th and 39th respectively behind race-winner, Thijs Al of the Netherlands.


PLANET X OLD SKOOL SERIES

The new Planet X Old Skool Series is certainly taking shape; in addition to Alan Rochford?s cash bonus of £492.40 for the first rider to break Alf Engers? unofficial ?pre-aero? 25-mile record in one of the new Old Skool events, Planet X is also putting up a £500 bonus for the first person to break Colin Sturgess? 10-mile record of 18:48 under similar conditions.

Further, the overall winner of the series will likely receive the Planet X team car that Ian Cammish will use to get to and from the events next year.

In an attempt to get the country?s top ?testers? to have a go, the organisers will be offering £5000 to anybody who can break all four Old Skool records in 2009. The 10 and 25 can only be broken in the Old Skool series whilst the 50 and 100 records can be broken in any CTT open event.

Sharp took the series overall thanks to a fourth place on the day, only two points clear of Young.
