Inside Natures Giants – The Racehorse

1

(Due to the wonders of the internet am now pretty convinced the title link should now be to a non geo-restricted site) The link is to a documentary recently shown in the UK - one of the Inside Nature's Giants series (which last year won a BAFTA - our version of an Emmy). The full majesty and fragility of the thoroughbred racehorse is frankly addressed. Ever wondered why and how horses can run so fast? This programme that will go a long way towards explaining that. Highly Recommended viewing. (NB The programme was shown in the UK with a parental advisory notice as not really suitable for young children. Includes scenes in the mating shed (Coolmore's no less) and of a post mortem)

Velká Pardubická 2011

Sunday saw the 121st running of the biggest race of the year in the Czech republic (title link to race description at wiki cs). A cross country steeplechase over 4m 2.5f and 31 fences (including the formidable Taxis fence - the fourth fence jumped) with £150K+ of prize money up for grabs - it is the feature race of a cracking days racing at the track. Czech coverage (in HD) up at youtube Racing UK channel also covers the race - coverage gives a quick run through of the runners and riders and has english commentary (if you sync the two can get high quality video and english commentary).

Cavendish - The Human Missile

4

Every Christmas Day UK ES has a cycling special. The last three years it has been Cavendish centred. First shown last Xmas Day UK ES are repeating the last one (with the above named title) several times between now and the start of the Giro. The show is a review of last year with a Cav interview in between the race clips (and with Renshaw, Stapleton, Eisel, Aldag and Pieper joining in). Covers early year loss of form, that crash at Suisse, the Tour (losing, crying, headbutts and all) the Vuelta and the Worlds. The section on the Vuelta and Worlds (half way through to end) is particularly good. Cav typically himself most of the way through. He makes you disagree with him, agree with him, and several times makes you laugh out loud. Any fan will love it, for non fans still worth a watch - his perspective is always interesting. Being repeated Thursday UK ES1 18.30 BST/19.30CEST/13.30Eastern Friday UK ES2 17.00 BST/18.00 CEST/12.00 Eastern UK ES1 20.30 BST/21.30 CEST/15.30 Eastern EDIT Saturday UK ES1 12.25 BST/13.25CEST/07.25 Eastern Cancelled for tennis Coverage of Giro Stage 1 put back to 14.45 accordingly) Streams available quite readily - see fanshot title and elsewhere

Bobridge breaks the unbreakable

42

Many many congratulations to Jack Bobridge - new world record holder. He has bettered Chris Boardman's 4000m Pursuit world record by over half a second in the qualifying rounds of his national track championships today. (Boardman's record had been 15 years on the record books and was set using the now banned "superman" position) The final between JB and Rohan Dennis promises to be fast. Edit - it was fast, just not as fast... Bobridge is the new National Champion. Hopefully some video will come along later in the day Edit - sadly have found no video so far. SBS do have a brief report of the final and an interview with the new WR holder. If anyone finds anything please post it - hopefully this was recorded by someone somewhere.

Is the name of the report that the New Cycling Pathways conference in Geelong was organised around. (The very same conference that shot to prominence when it invited Landis to speak.) The title links to the home page of the conference. The news blog tab has the best links. The above named report from Deakin's business and law faculty. Well worth a skim/read, full of food for thought and if nothing else pgs 89/90 gives a definitive description of the Passport adjudication process.
