    MTV's shows maybe...not the station itself. It's been doing strong for like 25 years (or close to it) now.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    Actually that'd be a good way to meet a famous biker. But you have to fake not being able to bike.

    Or show them track racing and get a sweet track bike and track stand lessons.

    Or any cool bike thing where you'll get free swag.

    To get it you have to act like you don't know how to ride a bike.

    Be an avid cyclist that wants to get made into a fat slob. Comic book guy is your coach.

    I have no idea what you're talking about, so here's a bunny with a pancake on its head.

    Okay, I'm too lazy to actually post the bunny. So just imagine it.

    Why don't you just pitch your goal as winning some sort of local bike race?

    There's a question on the app that says "why can't you do this without mtv's help?"
    what am I going to say, "not enough dedication/training/tactics"?
    thats my only hang-up

    You are a poor student, bike swag and coaches cost $$$$$$$$.

    MTV has access to the best coaches, you don't

    I've got to give half of the swag to some guy, iab, on the Internet or "else".

    that would have worked but I just bought a new bike.
    Training and travel/entrance fees might work though...

    I doubt you'd get it. You should do something else if you wanted to be on it. Most Made shows are kids doing completely new things they have never done before and things they wouldn't try themselves.

    don't you need to do something that is not like you at all? I've only seen a couple of them, some posh girl becoming a rapper, some posh girl becoming a skater, some posh girl riding a bmx, hang on maybe you need to be a posh girl.
    If you're a posh girl you could try to be some sort of wrestler? If your not a posh girl then I think you're screwed, woah hang one, there's an idea, would they let you do that?

    MTV doesn't know that. If it hasn't shown yet, I have no ethical problem lying to the MTV corporate machine that makes 50 times more on one 30-second spot on the cycling episode than the cost of your new bike. Did you get Zipps with your new bike?

    Yea its made, not "improved" so...
    How about a mountianeer? No mountains in WI, and I have no Mountain climbing skillz. That might work.
