Five more shows will follow on ESPN that day, and then, after giving viewers a rest day so that they can recover, the action resumes on December 26, as the programming switches over to ESPN2, with the final five shows beginning that evening. Please check your local listings to confirm the broadcast times in your area.

Pudzianowski, Marunde, Filou . . . all vying for the title; John Inverdale and Bill Kazmaier as the presenters, and Nick Halling and Colin Bryce providing commentary - you've been waiting for it and here it is.
