New Show - "Chasing Lance" on FitTV

I am the Executive Producer of FitTV's "Chasing Lance" and want to thank everyone who has watched the shows so far - "100 Days to the Tour" and "Hell of the North". We love to hear feedback, both good and bad, and hope that you keep it coming as the new shows hit air. As you can imagine we have spent a ton of time with the Discovery Cycling team over the past few months and hope that our viewers enjoy an unprecedented look at how the top team in cycling operates. We will also cover the team for the entire Tour and will show you what OLN can't...behind the scenes with Lance and his team. Look for 2-3 additional "Chasing Lance" shows in August on FitTV.

Starting next Monday night at 8PM through Friday night at 8PM, FitTV will air all 5 "Chasing Lance" episodes. The entire series will run back to back at 3pm on Saturday, July 3nd. On Sunday the 3rd, Discovery HD Theatre will premiere all of the shows in HD - truly a sight to be seen.

We encourage any and all feedback on our series. Please send us an email with your thoughts...

Thanks a lot.

The first two editions have been wonderful. I was worried it would be "All Lance, All the Time" like OLN's coverage, but I was pleasantly surprised with the focus on the entire Discovery team. Focusing in on the Spring Classics riders (a lot of Hincapie, a lot of Hammond, et. all), with a sprinkling of Lance's training in California is a great way to present the team. The public at large thinks there is only one race a year (TdF) with one rider against the world.

There is so much more.... the team work, the traditional European races and focus for a whole season, the trainers, cooks, and equipment managers. The behind-closed-doors peek at the Paris-Roubaix bikes with the "SPA" stays, 25cc tires, and the properly aged tubulars was interesting.

Keep up the insightful work.
