No easy ride for BBC News' Carrie

As a fluent Chinese speaker, BBC News Channel presenter Carrie Gracey is sure to prove a major asset during the Beeb’s coverage of the Olympic Games.

However, we recommend she be kept away from the cycling events.

During the Tour of Switzerland bike race earlier this summer, the BBC showed a clip of a cyclist riding off the road and down a ravine, which inspired smiles and muffled giggles from Gracey.

We can reveal the reason. It reminded her of the time she lost control of her own bike … and rode straight into the River Thames.
