'Cycling Central', nominated as a finalist in the 2005 Australian Sports Commission Media Awards for ‘Best Commitment to the Coverage of Sport’, returns to TV channel SBS as of Sunday, December 4, at 5.30pm. SBS Television has long been viewed as 'Australia’s cycling network', with its strong commitment both in terms of event broadcasts and assisting in grass roots promotion, which has played a significant role in encouraging the growth of the sport in the country.
'Cycling Central' not only provides a showcase for Australian cycling talent, but also acts as a forum to educate and entertain viewers across all different forms of the sport. From recreational to road racing, mountain biking to track cycling, elite riders to weekend warriors - there’s something for every cyclist each week. Hosted once again by SBS’s Mike Tomalaris, the 2005/06 15-week series will feature news and reviews from all cycling disciplines.
