Discovery Channel to Premiere Motocross Special

Our old friend Joe Colombero has been busy working with Friends star Matt LeBlanc to produce a four-part series of specials which takes viewers along for the ride with some of the biggest stars of motorcycling. Racer X contributor Jim Kimball spotted this online:

"The 5 Coolest Things" will air on November 29 at 9:30 PM ET/PT

SILVER SPRING, Md., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Discovery Home & Leisure Channel unveils four specials under the banner THE 5 COOLEST THINGS, focusing on the leading superstars in the exciting and dangerous world of motocross. Each special highlights the best of each motocross discipline, identifying the "five coolest things" about that particular specialty of the sport. The series also showcases the unique personalities and styles of the sport's stars, featuring in-depth, one-on-one interviews with Supercross star Jeremy McGrath; Freestyle sensation Travis Pastrana; Road Racing champion Nicky Hayden; and Off-Road Racing pros Rodney Smith and Mike Kiedrowski. The following specials premiere on Discovery Home & Leisure Channel as part of its weekend block for auto and bike enthusiasts:

These specials unveil the intensity, the thrills, the stunts and the future of motocross, demonstrating the incredible skill required to succeed in the sport and the back story on how each style was developed.

You recorded the wrong channel. It was on Discovery Home and Leisure channel. I think that caused a lot of confusion for people.

If you go to Discoverys website and click on the home & leisure link you can see that the % coolest things are on mucho times, each event (4 of them) is on multiple days, so, even if you missed the first supercross show it will replay late Dec. All of them replay many times. I printed it out yesterday for my bros that were interested. I watched the first show w/Matt interviewing Jeremy, it was cool even though it was more for newbies.greenhorns/or those not familiar with our sport. Good public relations I suppose. Matt did his best but he's, after all, an actor, not your normal interviewer. I think thay should let me do the interviews so I can get close to the stars, LOL!
