    Some great stuff coming up in ITV 4 - ‘No limits season’

    ‘The science of…’

    Exploring seven-times Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong's high-altitude training methods, superhuman physiology and high-tech equipment. Featuring people who work in the front line with Lance, such as sporting director Johan Bruyneel who masterminds the tactics behind each race, or those developing new ideas and strategies in the laboratory.

    'Race Across America' sees solo British cyclist Jim Rees attempt to break the UK record for “the world’s toughest event”, the transcontinental 3000 mile Race Across America. Battling desert heat of 115 degrees, thin mountain air, and travelling across 14 states and four time zones, it is the most extreme cycling marathon event for the world’s strongest athletes.

    'Sir Ranulph Fiennes: Eiger Challenge' Sir Ranulph Fiennes attempts to climb the North Face of the Eiger - one of the most dangerous climbs known to man. He is one of Britain's greatest explorers and has spent most of his life doing the kind of thing that most normal people would consider an extremely bad idea. He has trekked solo to both the South and North Poles, circumnavigated the globe the hard way and hacked off his frostbitten fingers. Himself. With a hacksaw.

    'In Go Commando!' ITV4 follows Lieutenant Orlando Rogers and Captain Ben Gaffney of the Royal Marines as they set off from the Canary Islands on a 3,000 mile rowing race across the Atlantic Ocean. With no previous experience they are relying on their tough Commando training to get them through, and to add to the challenge they are naked.

    'Chris Boardman: The Final Hour' sees Chris Boardman, the finest cyclist of his generation, tackle the last “pure” hour record – Eddy Merckx’s of 1972 – before he retires. This documentary follows Chris Boardman all the way from the day he makes the decision to the decisive day in October 2000 when he hopes to make history at the World Championships at the Manchester Velodrome
