Update: Non-working clips replaced.
Top Gear, the best car show in the world, recently aired episode 5 in Series 10, where they had a race across London, to City Airport, during Monday morning rush hour.
Richard Hammond used a high-end Specialized bicycle (Carbon Specialized Sirrus costing some £1700); "slowest man in the world" James May drove a huge hearse-like silver 5.5 litre Mercedes GL500; The Stig, armed with an Oyster card (like our ez-link), took public transport; and Jeremy Clarkson used a £52,000 Cougar sport racing boat (with a 3.5 litre 220hp VTEC Honda engine, top speed: 75 mph) to race across the Thames.
Watch the Youtube clips in sequence to find out who won.
There were some bits of dangerous riding by Hammond, like the part where he overtakes a postal van in what is commonly called a killzone by cyclists, but the show was entertaining as heck.
Loved it when Jeremy called the rowers on the Thames the cyclists of the waterway, who hate boats with engines like his.
The music was also spot-on for each of the four race participants.
