The older I get, the faster I used to be ...
Please do something about the motorbike camera - out of focus, and colour washing out in the sun. And the presenters leave a lot to be desired too - Rob Hayles is just about OK but the other one - Marty McDonald? - is almost impossible to listen to.

steve cumming crashed and taken to hospital, sad to hear on the day they ride through the area where he lives
Absolutely fascinating to watch them ride roads I do every week and gratifying to see them rising out of the saddle at the same points, though I would say they tend to be moving a smidge faster.

I did also wonder about a couple of the tight turns on that route and sure enough there was one or two crashes and a few close calls on the bends I was concerned about.
Here's one of the corners I was worried about.

I always go wide and lean in on this. Might take it a bit easier there in future!
