    Yeah, we were cheering Hammond on - ridiculous but fun!!
  4. Funniest comment was when May was amazed that the bike cost £1,700 (IIRC).... hang on a minute, how much does that Chelsea Tractor (their words) cost, and wasn't it £56,000 for the speedboat.

    Anyway, bike won, and the "car" was last, superb:biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

    They had to get from the West end of the North Circular to the East (City airport) with james May in huge Merc, The Stig on public transport, Clarkson in a motor boat and Hammond oin a bike.

    hammond was really gunning it but he was in the lead the whole way. A great victory for cycling! Hurrah! Incidentally, the car came last, hahaha!

    I'd go for the boat every time. What a way to travel, fantastic!

    They missed out on the fastest vehicle of all, which is a motorcycle.

    Shame Hammond was really the only one fit enough to ride the bike - the other two would have died........ about after a mile !

    pretty funny stuff as was obvious the bike would win would have been better if clakson had been on the bike. Isnt Simon cowell an arrogant pillock though.
