    Since when does cycling go around literally the same 400 metres over and over? (track cycling excepted.) Watching people run around the same flat 400m track is clearly more boring to watch than cyclists going along a large stretch of road, some of which is flat, but you get undulating terrain and then of course mountains. Not to mention that it goes through some of the most beautiful areas in the world. Now compare that to the view inside a stadium and well meh.

    Motor sports and animal racing are dire in general. Cycling and long-distance running are boring to watch but awesome sports. Both, especially the latter, require plenty of strategy. Takes some time to really appreciate golf. Baseball seems dull at first but is another good sport to watch. Soccer (football) is usually great to watch (except for those **** matches where the ball is always being headed around ... FFS, it's football) and relatively easy to understand for anyone. American football, on the other hand, is very exciting and easily one of the most intricate and complex of all sports.

    Once again you seem to fail to grasp the fact that athletics isn't exclusively running around a track. I realise there are different aspects to cycling, even on the Tour de France there will be hill stages etc.

    Please tell me you don't actually believe that? I challenge you to "jog" for 26 miles 385 ydds in 2 hours 19 minutes. As the son of a relatively successful marathon runner, and a former long-distance runner myself, you are so far off the mark it's not true. I suspect that you know that though.

    What about Marathon running? Cross-country?

    Football.

    I really can't get my head round the appeal of it, as a kid i could stand it, but now i wouldn't even watch the world cup final if England ever got through.

    Are you calling me fat?

    ITBT, I used to run long-distance, middle-distance and sprint, depending on what the team needed of me, but long-distances were my favourite. Then I got a bad chest, recovered from that only to have gotten serious with a godforsaken woman. Now I'm hopelessly unfit, shame. Should get fit again, though I could never really see myself on the track or cross-country again.

    It's been around for 40+ years tbh and it's not isolated to cycling either.
