Biking on TV?

Is there any biking shown on TV these days?

From road to mountain anything...?

There used to be a show on once a week here that covered the downhill racing here. But then that got canned and a surfing show got put on instead . I have just discovered that a 'nature' show has started to put DH on it every once in a while. SO i'm going to keep an eye on that.

What show is that. And is it real DH or is it little XCing down slopes and the cameras are trying to make it look extreme. I hate it when TV shows do that.

i have this trendy outdoor network channel and it shows outdoor sports and a couple of times I've seen biking stuff. I saw a couple crazy downhill ones and it was sweet but that was before I rode for fun.

Well, believe it or not, but Totally Wild has DH on it ! There is proof because if you watch the start of the show it shows some DH action!
