Mountain biking on WB!?

Snday morning I was getting ready for work and I was watching the WB network. At 6 am this past Sunday they had a half hour show on mountain biking. It was a female host riding with a trail guide. Not much instructional on the tougher areas they went through but it was still a cool show. I have no idea if this is a reguar show or not. I will have to watch again this Sunday to see if it's on again. I'm guessing if it is that this woman gets to travel across the country and gets paid to ride the best mountain biking in the country. I forget where they were this past week, but I'm sure it was in the mountains of the Eastern US. I want to say the south too NC/SC maybe.

Keep your eye on CBS sports too everyone once in a while they will have a cool sporting event like the Xterra, tour de france, and a lot of other 24 hour and endurance races. I think its ussually on saturdays at noon so maybe you can get lucky and catch something moutain bike friendly.

The Simpsons (TV show on FOX) did a parody of a WB promo where the WB frog says,

"And coming up next on the WB... another lame-ass show that no one is watching."

Pretty funny :-)

Sounds like rideguides. Exactly like it. Problem is thats in Alberta and BC and doesn't stray to far. So I am guessing a rip off show. Either way mountain biking + TV = exposure
