California downhill mountain bike racing enthusiasts can tune in to KDOC/LA56 in Los Angeles, KFMB/CBS in San Diego, KEYT/ABC in Santa Barbara, and KIEM/NBC in Eureka. The episodes run 28.5 minutes and do not break for commercials.

The show features a trio of USC grads — Samantha McDonald, Host; Ross McDonald, Co-host and Editor; Christine Detz, Producer — and Commentator Mikey Haderer, a long-time mountain bike personality.

The final episode of the 2015 season will air Saturday, October 31 on KDOC/LA56 at 6:00 am, and covers the final Pro GRT race that was held at Mammoth Mountain on September 26. This episode will also air on the web ( and Pinkbike) by Sunday November 1, 9am.
