Phil "mtbing isn't a real sport" Liggett is doing a live webchat right now on the guardian website if anyone fancies heranging him?
Phil Liggett webchat right now
I agree with this...
Quite why the Guardian has invited a commentator who is so discredited to give his views on cycling to the wider community is beyond me.

Poor show, particularly from a newspaper built on high quality investigative journalism

errr... Cyclocross, trials, 4x, DH...
