Movie based on David Walsh's book hits UK cinemas next month...

A new trailer has been released for The Program, the film about Lance Armstrong that hits UK cinemas next month.

Starring Ben Foster as the disgraced cyclist, it's based on Sunday Times journalist David Walsh's book, Seven Deadly Sins.

The movie is directed by Stephen Frears, who ahead of its premiere at the Tornonto International Film Festival at the weekend said he was attracted to the subject because he wanted to make a crime film, not a biopic.

Produced by Working Title, it will play in UK cinemas from 16 October.

Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
