In the first episode of Season 4, Neil, Matt and Bruce give the lowdown on the lockdown including what they have been up to in the months since the last show during which time the world has changed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Recording from home, they review the status of each of the regional leagues in the UK (as of 12 June 2020); the status of the National Trophy is also addressed with an update of where things stand for each of the rounds. The issues and difficulties facing organisers are debated, perhaps giving insight into why there is no news from some of the key events that we would usually be looking forward to at this time of year.

They wonder how the rammed and planned September / October MTB, road, cross calendars can be achieved, with all-rounders needing to choose between classics, and fans (and sponsors) having to make difficult decisions of which races to follow.

Looking forwards they discuss what might happen and what might not for the 2020-2021 season and how they will get their fill of off-road cycling in the next few months.
