I saw that episode a few months ago! I'd never seen Top Gear before; I saw it on Comcast's On Demand feature.
That race cracked me up and I had to make the DH watch it because he has a bass boat and would love to be able to drive it to work, and he actually does ride his bike to work every day. I think it was cool that the bike guy got there first!
