On today's Blue Peter, we are

7:00:047:00:06

going sports crazy with an Olympic size competition.

7:00:067:00:10

And we've got two unbelievable Sport Relief challenges.

7:00:107:00:13

And to top it all off, Lindsey

7:00:137:00:15

and Radzi are competing for this golden frying pan for Pancake Day.

7:00:157:00:18

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

7:00:347:00:36

Hello, welcome to live Blue Peter.

7:00:367:00:38

It is a special one because it is a sports spectacular.

7:00:387:00:41

You just heard about it, but I'm going to tell you all over again,

7:00:417:00:44

because we've teamed up with Team GB to launch an awesome,

7:00:447:00:47

incredible, amazing competition, and I'm wearing a headband to celebrate!

7:00:477:00:51

Very exciting. Also, Sir Chris Hoy, the legend himself,

7:00:517:00:54

has set a challenge for Radzi and myself.

7:00:547:00:56

It is a speedy cycling challenge.

7:00:567:00:58

Part one later, stay tuned, it is very fun.

7:00:587:01:00

It is a busy show, it is jam-packed with sporty fun,

7:01:007:01:02

because as well as that, I'm going

7:01:027:01:04

to be revealing my latest Blue Peter challenge for Sport Relief.

7:01:047:01:07

You've seen this, the hamster ball, as a bit of a clue.

7:01:077:01:10

Question is, what is that all about?

7:01:107:01:12

Well, Hacker T Dog had a little guess. Check this out.

7:01:127:01:15

I think Lindsey Russell's big challenge is going to be...

7:01:157:01:20

dancing with a baked Alaska!

7:01:207:01:22

Oh, meringue-based puddings!

7:01:227:01:25

-That's what I call her.

-Yes, I don't think that's right, is it?

7:01:257:01:29

But you lot at home have been guessing all day on CBBC,

7:01:297:01:32

so we'll let you know later if you are right.

7:01:327:01:34

Also, with Shrove Tuesday just round the corner... Do weeks have corners?

7:01:347:01:37

..we are going to be making some pancakes with a Blue Peter theme.

7:01:377:01:40

Look at that. It is a challenge for Radzi and Lindsey in a bit,

7:01:407:01:43

stay tuned, it is going to be fun. I can't wait.

7:01:437:01:45

Guys, stop talking, that's it, I've just decided it,

7:01:457:01:48

I've got to tell the viewers. You at home,

7:01:487:01:49

it's time to show you all about our brand-new Team GB competition.

7:01:497:01:53

To earn an Olympic gold medal,

7:01:567:01:58

you have to be the very best athlete in the world.

7:01:587:02:01

You have to be quick, you have to be strong, you have to be skilful.

7:02:017:02:05

But to earn a Blue Peter sport badge, you need

7:02:057:02:08

an extra ingredient.

7:02:087:02:10

Something a bit special.

7:02:107:02:12

You need to be inspirational.

7:02:127:02:15

But how can the Blue Peter sport badge get more epic than that?

7:02:177:02:20

Well, how about a sports match made in heaven?

7:02:207:02:24

Blue Peter sport badge, meet the Olympics!

7:02:247:02:28

We've teamed up with Team GB for a brand-new Blue Peter competition.

7:02:287:02:32

Here's Olympic medallist

7:02:327:02:33

and superstar Team GB gymnast Beth Tweddle to tell you more.

7:02:337:02:37

Team GB are the amazing athletes who are going to be competing for us

7:02:377:02:40

this summer in Brazil at the Olympic Games.

7:02:407:02:43

Together with Team GB,

7:02:437:02:44

we're making this year's sport badge extra special.

7:02:447:02:48

This one is going to be different.

7:02:487:02:50

-This one is going to be designed by one of you.

-That's right.

7:02:507:02:53

Your design on one of these!

7:02:537:02:56

This is huge news!

7:02:567:02:58

Plus, there's more. Tell them, Beth.

7:02:587:03:01

Not only will your design become the Blue Peter sport badge given

7:03:017:03:05

to thousands of Blue Peter sporting fans, but it's also going to be

7:03:057:03:09

given to every Team GB athlete that is heading out to Rio this summer.

7:03:097:03:13

That is world-class sports stars competing for Team GB

7:03:137:03:15

in the summer's Olympic Games wearing something that you created.

7:03:157:03:19

Told you it was big news, and it doesn't end there.

7:03:197:03:22

We also want you to write an inspirational message

7:03:227:03:25

to our Team GB athletes. Let's get them motivated.

7:03:257:03:29

Oh, and this will be used in a very cool way.

7:03:297:03:33

Trust me.

7:03:337:03:35

So, we want you to design this year's Team GB Blue Peter

7:03:357:03:40

sport badge.

7:03:407:03:41

Then write an inspirational message of no more than 118 characters,

7:03:417:03:45

including spaces.

7:03:457:03:47

And tell us which Team GB athlete inspires you.

7:03:477:03:50

All the details are on the Blue Peter website.

7:03:507:03:53

Get designing.

7:03:567:03:57

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

7:03:577:03:59

-There it is, the happy dance.

-It is the extra happy dance.

7:03:597:04:02

Beth Tweddle was showing off there,

7:04:027:04:03

that was the best way to finish the film ever. Thank you, Beth.

7:04:037:04:06

If you are like me, you're thinking, how do I apply for this competition?

7:04:067:04:09

Well, the answer is very easy.

7:04:097:04:10

Simply print out one of these bad boys, you can

7:04:107:04:13

get them on the Blue Peter website.

7:04:137:04:15

Then here comes the thing I think is the most important part.

7:04:157:04:18

This is the shield, which I'm going to call the shield of destiny.

7:04:187:04:21

You draw your design in there. You explain your design.

7:04:217:04:25

It's not officially called that, but it is my nickname for it, OK?

7:04:257:04:28

Then you include your inspirational message,

7:04:287:04:30

and tell us which Team GB athlete inspires you at home. Oh, yes.

7:04:307:04:35

There are three very important things you have to think about

7:04:357:04:37

when designing your sport badge.

7:04:377:04:39

It is so important, I got a separate shot on camera two.

7:04:397:04:41

Hello, how are you doing?

7:04:417:04:43

So, these are the previous sport badges, aren't they?

7:04:437:04:45

-Don't worry about these, your design has to be unique...

-Hold it up.

7:04:457:04:48

Oh, sorry. I keep forgetting it is down there.

7:04:487:04:50

It has to be unique, imaginative,

7:04:507:04:52

and it has to be something that is eye-catching.

7:04:527:04:54

It has to celebrate sport, and it has to celebrate Team GB.

7:04:547:04:57

I've done those the wrong way round. I know I'm saying these

7:04:577:05:00

are the most important things you need to remember.

7:05:007:05:02

You're over-excited.

7:05:027:05:03

The first one is, it has to celebrate sport and Team GB.

7:05:037:05:05

The second one is, it has to be eye-catching, imaginative,

7:05:057:05:08

and it has to stand out. These are the original designs.

7:05:087:05:11

Don't worry about these, it is your chance to the original. Thirdly...

7:05:117:05:15

Thirdly, you can't use anything that's gone before, so you can't

7:05:157:05:18

use the logo for Rio 2016, you can't use the Olympic or Paralympic name.

7:05:187:05:22

And you can't use the Olympic rings or the mascots.

7:05:227:05:24

It has fallen off, it has gone so well.

7:05:247:05:26

This is a live show, everybody.

7:05:267:05:27

Pick the badge up, and I'll do the next bit.

7:05:277:05:29

Remember, if you apply, your design is actually going to be

7:05:297:05:32

used as the next Blue Peter sport badge. That is awesome

7:05:327:05:35

because it is going to be given out to all of the athletes in Rio.

7:05:357:05:38

They are going to be wearing your design. That's awesome.

7:05:387:05:41

And you're even going to get to meet some of the athletes,

7:05:417:05:44

and any Blue Peter viewers who get a sport badge,

7:05:447:05:46

they're going to just be walking around town wearing your design.

7:05:467:05:49

It is the coolest thing.

7:05:497:05:50

-I love it.

-This is my favourite Blue Peter competition of all time.

7:05:507:05:53

It is the best thing, it is amazing.

7:05:537:05:55

I remember watching Blue Peter. I'd think,

7:05:557:05:57

"Where do they keep all the badges?" Well, here is the answer.

7:05:577:05:59

On one of these fantastic blue things.

7:05:597:06:01

If you count all these up, you will count 30 orange badges.

7:06:017:06:04

One of the rarest, actually, of all the badges. Why do we have 30?

7:06:047:06:06

That's because if you come inside the top 30 of this

7:06:067:06:09

competition, you get one.

7:06:097:06:11

And if you come second or third, it's not all about winning,

7:06:117:06:13

you get yourself a framed design. Does it get any better than that?

7:06:137:06:16

-The answer is no.

-It doesn't.

-So you know everything you need to know.

7:06:167:06:19

Where do you send your entry forms to? Here's the address.

7:06:197:06:23

It is...

7:06:237:06:24

..M50 2BH. Stands for Barney Harwood.

7:06:287:06:30

No, it doesn't. It doesn't stand for that. Now, remember,

7:06:307:06:33

you need to send those in to us by 12 noon,

7:06:337:06:36

Tuesday the 23rd of February.

7:06:367:06:38

-We are all a bit giddy because we are excited.

-I'm excited!

7:06:387:06:41

And you need to be aged between six and 15, OK,

7:06:417:06:44

on Tuesday the 23rd of February.

7:06:447:06:46

That's really, really important if you want to apply.

7:06:467:06:48

All the terms and conditions that you need are on the Blue Peter

7:06:487:06:51

website, which is right here, so what are you waiting for?

7:06:517:06:54

-Get involved, it's a good thing to do.

-Let's walk!

7:06:547:06:57

I know you want to walk.

7:06:577:06:58

Because it is not just competition entries that we love

7:06:587:07:01

getting from you, it is also brilliant post.

7:07:017:07:03

And since our Letters Song, look at the badge wall.

7:07:037:07:06

Barney is peeking behind it. It is covered in all your brilliant post.

7:07:067:07:09

This is amazing.

7:07:097:07:10

Zara, who's 13, has sent in these clay models of us,

7:07:107:07:14

mine is pretty much life-size, doing The Letters Song.

7:07:147:07:16

She has even done the laminate flooring that we were on on the day.

7:07:167:07:19

Radzi has got a little keyboard there.

7:07:197:07:21

Barney has got his microphone as he's doing his solo,

7:07:217:07:23

and I am playing my sax. That is brilliant.

7:07:237:07:26

-Zara, you are a legend. Thank you.

-Dylan, from Hertfordshire,

7:07:267:07:29

is it possible to make a tiger which moves its tail? Oh, yes, it is.

7:07:297:07:32

You've proven it, my friend. Look at that there.

7:07:327:07:34

What a fantastic drawing you've made.

7:07:347:07:36

-The legs move as well, it's amazing.

-Lovely, Dylan.

7:07:367:07:38

Thanks very much, sir.

7:07:387:07:39

Speaking of tigers, I'm going to bring this out,

7:07:397:07:42

because you may remember my very cute tiger cub film.

7:07:427:07:44

And if you've been online, you will have seen me do this.

7:07:447:07:47

Feed the meat to the little baby tigers like that.

7:07:477:07:50

And Annabel from London sent this in.

7:07:507:07:52

There you can see Mum just helping the little ones out.

7:07:527:07:54

-Thank you so much for that, Annabel, it's amazing.

-Very quickly,

7:07:547:07:57

Chloe from Cheltenham, thank you for sending this in.

7:07:577:08:00

This is your silver badge chance,

7:08:007:08:01

and you've got it for making 3-D Iggy and Shelley. Thank you so much.

7:08:017:08:04

Now, what I would also say to each and everyone of you.

7:08:047:08:06

If you want to get a Blue Peter badge on your post,

7:08:067:08:09

you must include some things.

7:08:097:08:10

Your age, your address and date of birth,

7:08:107:08:12

because we want to be able to send you the badges that you so

7:08:127:08:15

-deserve, my friends.

-That's right.

-BELL RINGS

7:08:157:08:17

That noise, there it is, means there is now 12 minutes to go

7:08:177:08:21

until we reveal my launch of my new thing. And it is very exciting.

7:08:217:08:26

-I'm going to tell them what it is now.

-No, no, don't. 12 more minutes.

7:08:267:08:29

You're not allowed to. Listen, let's move this on quickly.

7:08:297:08:32

From your masterpieces on the Blue Peter Big Badge Wall

7:08:327:08:34

to some other masterpieces you are about to see.

7:08:347:08:36

And for this, you will need to follow me over here. Are you coming?

7:08:367:08:39

OK, so it's Shrove Tuesday next week,

7:08:417:08:44

which means I'm not letting anyone get by without a pancake

7:08:447:08:47

challenge, and that's specifically aimed at these two over here.

7:08:477:08:50

So, Lindsey and Radzi, you are going to be doing the following.

7:08:507:08:53

Making pancakes with a Blue Peter theme.

7:08:537:08:55

You can choose whichever theme you like.

7:08:557:08:56

If you want to make Shelley, go ahead.

7:08:567:08:58

If you want to make an Iggy, you can do that, or maybe Hacker T.

7:08:587:09:02

He may not be on the show, but he is quite often, and we love him for it.

7:09:027:09:04

So, how to make pancakes is very simple.

7:09:047:09:06

These are the ingredients you're going to need.

7:09:067:09:09

I don't know why I said "milk" like that, it just made me smile.

7:09:157:09:17

OK, so, first things first. Flour into the bowl.

7:09:177:09:20

And you want to make what is called a well with your finger.

7:09:207:09:23

Your clean finger, please. Don't put it up your nose first.

7:09:237:09:27

Right into the middle, and just do a little spirally thing like that.

7:09:277:09:30

And then what you want to do is

7:09:307:09:32

crack your eggs into the middle of that. Very simply. There is one.

7:09:327:09:36

Try not to get too much shell in, that's me trying to be flash.

7:09:367:09:39

One more.

7:09:397:09:41

-Ooh!

-And then what you want to do... Thank you, Lindsey.

7:09:417:09:43

..is poor your milk in from the side.

7:09:437:09:45

I'm going to do this left-handed and whisk with the right hand.

7:09:457:09:48

And pour it in gradually whilst you mix the mixture.

7:09:487:09:50

The reason you're doing it gradually is

7:09:507:09:52

because if you don't, it will just make a big pancake battery ball.

7:09:527:09:56

And once that is mixed all together, you want to dip it into

7:09:567:10:00

the other bowl, which I have down here,

7:10:007:10:02

along with your cocoa mix.

7:10:027:10:06

You want to keep whisking it quite well until it goes nice and smooth.

7:10:067:10:09

We're not actually going to use this batch today.

7:10:097:10:11

It's just to show you how to do it, really.

7:10:117:10:13

So, once you've mixed it to a nice, thick, smooth paste,

7:10:137:10:16

you pour half of it - ish - into the other mixing bowl

7:10:167:10:18

and then you add your cocoa powder to it

7:10:187:10:21

and then you want to give that a mix.

7:10:217:10:23

So, there you have two different types of pancake batter.

7:10:237:10:25

Oh, the smell coming off that is amazing!

7:10:257:10:27

I want to eat it, but don't eat it until you've cooked it!

7:10:277:10:30

I know you're tempted.

7:10:307:10:31

OK, so very simply, that's how you make pancake mix

7:10:317:10:34

if you want to try this at home. Lindsey and Radzi,

7:10:347:10:36

-if you'd like to come in, please.

-Yes!

-Here we go.

7:10:367:10:38

So, I've put your batter into bottles to make it easier for you.

7:10:387:10:41

OK, there they are, so you can draw with them.

7:10:417:10:43

You want to do it in layers.

7:10:437:10:45

Let me tell you what you're playing for -

7:10:457:10:46

-the coveted gold frying pan, my friends.

-Aah!

7:10:467:10:49

It's a beautiful thing, isn't it? Money can't buy.

7:10:497:10:51

This could be yours. So, we're going to do it in layers, in stages.

7:10:517:10:54

-Use the cocoa batter first.

-Yes.

7:10:547:10:55

Then you'll want to fill in the detail.

7:10:557:10:57

-It's like colouring in. Are you ready?

-This is hard.

7:10:577:10:59

Two and a half minutes on the time, starts...

7:10:597:11:01

-now!

-Um...

7:11:017:11:02

So, the reason you're doing the cocoa butter first -

7:11:027:11:05

-it's a bit like when you're drawing a picture.

-Oh, no.

7:11:057:11:07

You use the liner and then you colour it in afterwards, don't you?

7:11:077:11:10

I think I recognise this picture that Radzi's doing.

7:11:107:11:12

If I'm right, this is very similar to your autograph. Am I right?

7:11:127:11:15

-It is indeed, sir!

-So, you want to make sure you're nice and quick

7:11:157:11:18

with this because you don't want the batter on the outside to burn.

7:11:187:11:21

-This is hard.

-Once you've done the brown outline,

7:11:217:11:23

you want to fill it in with the white stuff. That's the idea.

7:11:237:11:26

Is that Shelley? That's really good.

7:11:267:11:28

-I've just given her a massive eyeball.

-That's OK.

-What a shame.

7:11:287:11:31

It helps her to see better at night.

7:11:317:11:33

-Wait, do I need to write "Shelley" backwards?

-Yeah, because

7:11:337:11:36

-it's going to flip over.

-I've got myself into a mess here.

7:11:367:11:38

That's a good point. You've got to flip the pancake for it to count.

7:11:387:11:41

-Barney, have you ever heard of Picasso?

-I have, yes.

7:11:417:11:43

-Is that what you're going for?

-He's got nothing on me.

7:11:437:11:45

-It's a beautiful thing.

-Oh, no, I've done it wrong.

-It's OK, don't worry.

7:11:457:11:48

-Wait a second. No, it's not right.

-That's backwards.

7:11:487:11:51

-Yeah, it is.

-Then the "S" is at the end.

-I think you're OK.

7:11:517:11:54

-If you keep spelling that way, you'll be fine.

-Are you sure?

7:11:547:11:57

If you flip it, it's the other way round. Yeah.

7:11:577:11:59

Unless you're spelling it "Shelley's."

7:11:597:12:02

You've got one minute, 30 seconds left.

7:12:027:12:04

-I like this.

-Doing really well. If you are going to try this at home,

7:12:047:12:07

make sure you get a parent to help you. Don't forget,

7:12:077:12:09

things can get quite hot. I know you know what you're doing

7:12:097:12:11

and you're safe when you're in the kitchen.

7:12:117:12:13

This is like being an ice cream man. You know when you ask him for a 99,

7:12:137:12:16

and then he gives you strawberry or chocolate sauce?

7:12:167:12:18

-This is like that sauce.

-Amazing.

7:12:187:12:20

It's a very nice batter.

7:12:207:12:22

Now, I haven't made these Blue Peter themed pancakes,

7:12:227:12:25

but I am going to be judging yours.

7:12:257:12:26

Yours smell like they're burning pretty badly.

7:12:267:12:28

Mine are burnt. Do you do this?

7:12:287:12:29

Yeah?

7:12:317:12:32

Well, if we take just the two examples here

7:12:327:12:34

that are being presented to you.

7:12:347:12:35

You've got a minute left. Radzi, you might need to start looking

7:12:357:12:38

at flipping that. I don't know what Lindsey's doing, I really don't.

7:12:387:12:41

-It's very, very hot over here.

-You've got 50 seconds left.

7:12:417:12:44

This is one burnt Shelley I'm giving you.

7:12:447:12:46

It's good.

7:12:467:12:48

Don't try that, don't do that. Do this.

7:12:487:12:50

-Radzi, mate, you've got 40 seconds left.

-Radzi's trying really hard.

7:12:507:12:53

I am trying. This is my concentration face.

7:12:537:12:55

You're going to want to think about flipping that because

7:12:557:12:58

-it'll stick to the pan otherwise.

-Am I? No, not yet.

7:12:587:13:00

-Can you smell burning?

-I can smell a really bad smell.

7:13:007:13:03

-Give it a flip, see if that helps.

-What shall I do? Barney!

7:13:037:13:06

Well, it needs to cook, doesn't it?

7:13:067:13:08

You've got 24 seconds left, so let it cook for a little bit.

7:13:087:13:11

-Let it cook.

-Yeah.

-Shall I just turn the heat up?

-It's going well.

7:13:117:13:15

If something's burning, do you turn the heat up?

7:13:157:13:17

Or, do you turn it down?

7:13:177:13:19

I know, but when it's competitive like this.

7:13:197:13:21

Radzi's never done this before and he's doing

7:13:217:13:23

an absolute genius of a job.

7:13:237:13:25

Don't forget, mate, we need a flip in there.

7:13:257:13:27

-I might not have time to flip it!

-Wait, wait, wait, wait!

7:13:277:13:29

-Look at mine!

-Mate, leave it as it is!

7:13:297:13:31

-SIREN BLARES

-Put it flat, put it flat.

7:13:317:13:33

Give that a quick flip, please.

7:13:337:13:35

It's actually not too bad.

7:13:357:13:37

OK, so, let's get these on our display plates.

7:13:377:13:39

I've got Shelley the wrong way round.

7:13:397:13:41

-Flip that onto there, please, Linds.

-I've burnt Shelley.

7:13:417:13:43

Radzi, put yours on there.

7:13:437:13:45

-It actually looks really good.

-Radzi, yours is really good!

7:13:457:13:48

-I'm really happy!

-If you want to try this,

7:13:487:13:49

go to the Blue Peter website. You'll find all the details on there.

7:13:497:13:52

We've got some sweet and savoury ideas for you as well.

7:13:527:13:55

While you're on the website, there is loads going on.

7:13:557:13:57

There's a brand-new game called Geo's Gym.

7:13:577:13:59

-Radzi and I, we had a go at it the other day, didn't we?

-We did.

7:13:597:14:01

Get online, have a go and there's a sport quiz as well.

7:14:017:14:04

So, loads going on on the website.

7:14:047:14:05

It's not even a contest. Radzi, that is the best Radzi pancake

7:14:057:14:09

-I have ever seen.

-That's really, really good!

7:14:097:14:11

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING

7:14:117:14:13

-Beautiful, congratulations, mate.

-Well done.

7:14:137:14:16

-Can you...?

-Bit of a weird...

-Can you smell that?

7:14:177:14:20

-I think I'm nervous.

-Nope, no, it's not that.

7:14:207:14:23

It's our brand-new Sport Relief game.

7:14:237:14:25

Look, we're asking you to send in your sweaty socks!

7:14:257:14:27

Not your real ones, of course!

7:14:277:14:29

But all you need to do is head to the Blue Peter website.

7:14:297:14:31

There's a lovely little example of the template there that you need.

7:14:317:14:34

Cut around the sock, decorate it and remember to tell us

7:14:347:14:37

what you are doing for Sport Relief.

7:14:377:14:39

How good do they look? Thank you, whoever sent them in.

7:14:397:14:41

-Amazing. Radzi?

-Yeah?

-What do you get if you cross

7:14:417:14:44

an Olympic champion with four wheels and a head-to-head race?

7:14:447:14:47

That's easy.

7:14:477:14:48

Our brand-new 2016 Sport Relief challenge.

7:14:487:14:50

Speaking of which, we need some energy. Let's eat these, shall we?

7:14:507:14:53

Mine's burnt.

7:14:537:14:54

'From subzero temperatures to epic swims,

7:14:577:15:00

'here on Blue Peter, we love pushing ourselves to the limit

7:15:007:15:03

'for Sport Relief.'

7:15:037:15:05

So proud of him!

7:15:057:15:07

'And this year is no exception.

7:15:077:15:09

'We've been set a special challenge to inspire you

7:15:097:15:11

'to get involved with Sport Relief 2016.'

7:15:117:15:15

Supposed to be here at nine o'clock

7:15:157:15:17

for our new cycle challenge and...

7:15:177:15:18

He will be furious if I'm late!

7:15:187:15:21

-BICYCLE HORN BLASTS

-Finally! How are you doing?

7:15:217:15:23

Mate, I'm sorry I'm late, but do you know what?

7:15:237:15:25

I'm kitted out with the right stuff and even got

7:15:257:15:28

Blue Peter flag.

7:15:287:15:29

That's a nice bike. I think you might want to leave that here.

7:15:297:15:32

There's probably some much cooler stuff inside.

7:15:327:15:35

'There's no place for that thing here.

7:15:357:15:37

'This is the National Cycling Centre in Manchester

7:15:377:15:40

'and inside, you'll find the velodrome -

7:15:407:15:43

'a track that has banked sides which help riders

7:15:437:15:45

'go really fast!'

7:15:457:15:47

Look at this!

7:15:477:15:49

This is unbelievable!

7:15:497:15:50

-Barney?

-What?

-This is where our challenge is happening.

7:15:507:15:53

Hey, mate, no ordinary challenge.

7:15:537:15:55

This is a "wheelie" big challenge.

7:15:557:15:58

'Ha-ha-ha!

7:15:587:16:00

'And our Sport Relief challenge won't be as simple

7:16:007:16:02

'as just getting round it without falling off.'

7:16:027:16:04

'Of course not! We're taking on something called

7:16:047:16:07

'a mini-omnium, or to you and I,

7:16:077:16:09

'three different track cycling races.'

7:16:097:16:12

'To tell us more is six-time Olympic champion Sir Chris Hoy.'

7:16:127:16:15

Hi, Barney and Radzi. Your Sport Relief challenge

7:16:157:16:18

is going to push your cycling abilities to the limit.

7:16:187:16:22

Your mini-omnium is going to be made up from three cycling events.

7:16:227:16:25

First, the flying lap -

7:16:257:16:27

one shot each at clocking the quickest circuit.

7:16:277:16:30

Fastest wins.

7:16:307:16:32

Next, the match sprint -

7:16:327:16:34

a tactical race with a fast finish.

7:16:347:16:36

And finally, the kilo.

7:16:367:16:38

You both start at different points in the track

7:16:387:16:40

and have 1km to try and catch each other up.

7:16:407:16:43

Good luck!

7:16:437:16:45

Two words -

7:16:457:16:46

hard work!

7:16:467:16:48

'This really will be!

7:16:487:16:50

'So, we need a top coach and, luckily, we've got one - Charlie.

7:16:507:16:54

'You may recognise from Barney's Tour of Britain challenge.'

7:16:547:16:57

Mate, I can't even speak.

7:16:577:16:58

'That was a tough one. Now, I've ridden on a track before,

7:16:587:17:01

'so it's only fair that Radzi gets a taster

7:17:017:17:03

'before training gets serious.'

7:17:037:17:05

Gents, I officially feel like Sir Chris Hoy.

7:17:067:17:08

You do look the part, mate, doesn't he?

7:17:087:17:11

You certainly look the part, Radzi.

7:17:117:17:12

We've noticed a distinct difference already and that is with the bike.

7:17:127:17:15

Where are the brakes?

7:17:157:17:17

We don't need brakes. We can regulate pace

7:17:177:17:19

using the geometry of the track and the fixed wheel.

7:17:197:17:23

-So, to go faster, we need to pedal faster.

-Exactly.

7:17:237:17:25

And the only way we can stop is by slowing our legs down.

7:17:257:17:28

We need to get some bike riding done.

7:17:287:17:30

I'm ready!

7:17:307:17:31

'Charlie wants me to see if I can get round the track

7:17:327:17:34

'without falling off.'

7:17:347:17:36

-Off you go.

-OK.

7:17:367:17:38

-Nice, strong push, that's it.

-I don't like this, Barn.

7:17:387:17:42

'This is so weird. My feet are clipped in so I can't

7:17:427:17:45

'even put them down, and I'm not even on the steep banked

7:17:457:17:48

'part of the track yet.'

7:17:487:17:50

Go, go, go!

7:17:507:17:52

'After sort of getting used to the bike on the flat,

7:17:527:17:55

'I ever so carefully move onto the light blue section -

7:17:557:17:57

'the very edge of the banking.'

7:17:577:17:59

I'll tell you what, Charlie, my stress levels

7:17:597:18:01

are through the roof right now.

7:18:017:18:03

'But I manage to complete a few circuits.'

7:18:037:18:06

Nicely done, wind it down and come in for me, Radzi.

7:18:077:18:11

That felt...

7:18:117:18:13

so intense.

7:18:137:18:14

It's quite a steep banking, but you're mastering it.

7:18:147:18:16

We're getting you there.

7:18:167:18:18

'The next day we head to Derby Velodrome

7:18:197:18:21

'for our first day on the track together.'

7:18:217:18:24

In your own time, boys, roll off.

7:18:267:18:29

'Charlie wants us to start practising skills we'll need

7:18:297:18:32

'for our challenge.

7:18:327:18:33

'Two of our races will rely on sheer speed,

7:18:337:18:35

'so we need to learn the fastest way round the track.'

7:18:357:18:38

That's it, squeeze it on.

7:18:387:18:40

'To do that, we need to use the coloured lines.

7:18:407:18:43

'First up - black.

7:18:437:18:44

'This line shows the shortest distance

7:18:447:18:46

'in which you can do a lap.'

7:18:467:18:48

'Then, Charlie wants us to move between the red and blue lines

7:18:497:18:52

'to build our confidence and help us increase our speed.'

7:18:527:18:55

Hey, you're looking confident there, Radzi.

7:18:557:18:57

I can already see in just a short amount of time

7:18:577:19:00

that Radzi is strong, he learns quick.

7:19:007:19:02

I went from really scared to absolutely loving that.

7:19:027:19:07

The speed you get... You literally feel like a fighter jet.

7:19:077:19:10

WHOOSH

7:19:107:19:11

'Next, we need to ride against each other on the track

7:19:117:19:14

'to help us prepare for our match sprint race.'

7:19:147:19:17

Going to have a little game of follow-the-leader.

7:19:177:19:19

Barney, you're going to be leader. So, Radzi,

7:19:197:19:21

wherever Barney positions himself on the track, you need to follow.

7:19:217:19:24

Off you go, Barney. Lead away.

7:19:247:19:27

'This gets us used to riding close together

7:19:277:19:29

'and tests our coordination.'

7:19:297:19:31

'When swapping positions, the rider on the outside

7:19:327:19:35

'has to work harder - something we'll have to master

7:19:357:19:37

'if we want to overtake in the race.'

7:19:377:19:40

Barney!

7:19:407:19:42

It's my turn to overtake!

7:19:427:19:43

-Go on, mate!

-I'm taking the lead!

7:19:437:19:45

Look at him go!

7:19:457:19:47

This is really tough!

7:19:477:19:48

So, what have we learnt from that?

7:19:507:19:52

We've learnt you are very confident and very good, in my opinion.

7:19:527:19:55

I think I'm more confident because I've done it more.

7:19:557:19:57

I think you're strong. When you overtook me over here,

7:19:577:20:00

and I tried to keep up with you, I was struggling.

7:20:007:20:02

It's definitely a well-suited challenge for two of us, I think.

7:20:027:20:05

Because I've got confidence, you've got strength. Anything could happen.

7:20:057:20:09

And one thing's guaranteed - we're going to have fun.

7:20:097:20:11

We are going to have fun.

7:20:117:20:12

-I'll high-five to that.

-Yes.

-Got you.

-Oh.

7:20:127:20:15

Speaking of fun,

7:20:157:20:17

we're taking a break from training to join this Go Ride session

7:20:177:20:19

organised by British Cycling, to have a go with some young riders.

7:20:197:20:24

These sessions allow cyclists of all abilities

7:20:247:20:26

to get some expert coaching.

7:20:267:20:28

And they don't just take place on the track.

7:20:287:20:30

I like cycling because you can keep fit.

7:20:307:20:33

I like cycling because you can meet a new group of friends.

7:20:337:20:36

You can ride wherever you want, whenever you want.

7:20:367:20:38

-And everybody gets on with each other.

-But I am better than you.

7:20:387:20:41

-No, I'm better than you.

-That's the spirit.

7:20:417:20:44

You can't beat a bit of competition.

7:20:447:20:46

Let's take that into our Sport Relief challenge, Barn.

7:20:467:20:49

We're training for our cycling challenge because we want to

7:20:497:20:52

inspire you to get involved with this year's Sport Relief.

7:20:527:20:54

We want you to walk, run, swim or even cycle for Sport Relief.

7:20:547:20:57

There are so many different ways you can get involved

7:20:577:21:00

for Sport Relief, and cycling is just one of them.

7:21:007:21:02

-You can say that again.

-Cycling is just one of them.

7:21:027:21:05

We're done here.

7:21:057:21:07

Barney and Radzi voted comedy duo, best 2016. There you have it.

7:21:097:21:12

The lovely warm studio, and as you can see, we're outside here now with

7:21:127:21:15

our thermal underpants on to tell you about something very exciting.

7:21:157:21:18

We want you to get inspired for Sport Relief

7:21:187:21:20

and we are only moments away...

7:21:207:21:22

-PHONE RINGS

-Oh, even less.

-There we go.

7:21:227:21:23

Zero minutes to go. Let's do it.

7:21:237:21:25

Zero minutes away from announcing

7:21:257:21:27

Lindsey's huge, big Sport Relief challenge.

7:21:277:21:29

-Do you want to see it? Oh, go on, then.

-Not yet.

7:21:297:21:32

You've been telling us all day on CBBC what you think it is.

7:21:327:21:35

We've had some incorrect, but quite funny, guesses. They've been good.

7:21:357:21:38

SalmonStormyRat says, "Run a 100 metres jumping over hamster balls,

7:21:387:21:41

"then paddle 50 metres around hamster balls." That's a good idea.

7:21:417:21:44

-Me and you think exactly the same.

-I'm glad it's not that.

7:21:447:21:47

CyanChirpyActor says, "Running a mini-marathon

7:21:477:21:49

"in a human hamster ball."

7:21:497:21:50

Not... Can't say anything.

7:21:507:21:53

MustardRainbowActor, "I think Lindsey is in a large ball

7:21:537:21:56

"full of water and she has to find a way to get out."

7:21:567:21:59

-Hmm.

-I like it.

7:21:597:22:00

-There's a lot that are close.

-Everyone's close.

7:22:007:22:03

Imagination is off the charts, by the way.

7:22:037:22:05

We have had correct guesses though. From OnyxTrailingMonkey,

7:22:057:22:08

AmberRockJedi, AmethystMegaRhino, CreamEcstaticDog,

7:22:087:22:11

GoldJokeyPrimeRoast, MagentaSportyGiraffe...

7:22:117:22:13

-Good reading!

-Yeah, thank you.

7:22:137:22:15

There's been loads of correct guesses. Big moment. Everyone ready?

7:22:157:22:18

-Ready.

-There it is!

7:22:187:22:20

CHEERING

7:22:207:22:24

Wow. And if you think that's impressive,

7:22:287:22:31

just wait until you see what I'm going to do.

7:22:317:22:33

Have a look at this.

7:22:337:22:35

Sport Relief 2016 is going to be huge.

7:22:357:22:38

So I'm going to do something truly epic to inspire you to get involved.

7:22:387:22:43

We've assembled a team of top engineers.

7:22:437:22:46

And I've had to get fit, really fit.

7:22:477:22:50

Why have we done all this?

7:22:507:22:53

So I can run across the Irish Sea.

7:22:537:22:55

Over 20 miles of open water.

7:22:577:23:00

Pushing my body to the absolute limit.

7:23:017:23:03

I'm about to become the wave-runner.

7:23:077:23:10

Keep driving, keep driving. Keep driving!

7:23:107:23:13

Oh, my goodness.

7:23:157:23:17

It's over there.

7:23:177:23:18

SHE SCREAMS

7:23:237:23:25

Yay!

7:23:277:23:29

That's right!

7:23:377:23:39

That is what I'm going to be doing. Help me!

7:23:397:23:42

Lindsey, it's hard to believe you're actually going to do this.

7:23:427:23:44

-It seems impossible.

-It does seem impossible, doesn't it?

7:23:447:23:47

It is a really big challenge.

7:23:477:23:49

But the best thing about Blue Peter, do you know what it is?

7:23:497:23:51

They surround you with the best of the best. And so my team is amazing.

7:23:517:23:55

-Nice.

-Yeah, Barney and Radzi. But also Greg Whyte.

7:23:557:23:58

He's been training me up, getting me in really good condition.

7:23:587:24:01

Abdul over there just said, "I hope you're healthy."

7:24:017:24:04

So do I. Greg Whyte, he trained Davina a couple of years ago.

7:24:047:24:08

-I remember that.

-Do you remember? She did 500 miles.

7:24:087:24:10

She did incredible.

7:24:107:24:12

So I am in good hands,

7:24:127:24:13

and I'm going to be nice and safe, and hopefully I can do it.

7:24:137:24:15

When you think about Sport Relief,

7:24:157:24:17

this year it's all about running, swimming, cycling and walking.

7:24:177:24:20

-We've done the cycling...

-And falling.

-And the falling, yeah.

7:24:207:24:22

I guess you're doing kind of like the running and walking?

7:24:227:24:25

I've got the rest of it covered in that thing.

7:24:257:24:27

I just wanted to do something huge that is going to inspire you lot

7:24:277:24:30

at home to basically get involved this year with Sport Relief.

7:24:307:24:33

It's so important that you do. It's never been done before.

7:24:337:24:36

This is a famous swimming route, though.

7:24:367:24:38

It has been swam by very talented people,

7:24:387:24:41

but never crossed in this wave-running machine that we've got.

7:24:417:24:44

-So hopefully...

-I can see why.

-Yeah, I know. It's a bit scary, isn't it?

7:24:447:24:47

Let's talk about the route itself.

7:24:477:24:49

Let's talk about the distance and what you're doing.

7:24:497:24:51

Well, you can see on this map that we're going to show you.

7:24:517:24:54

I'm going from Northern Ireland, Donaghadee,

7:24:547:24:56

all the way over there to Portpatrick, that's in Scotland.

7:24:567:24:59

That is, believe it or not, the shortest crossing.

7:24:597:25:01

It's 20 miles on the water. And we believe that on the day,

7:25:017:25:04

with the wind and the conditions and everything going against me,

7:25:047:25:07

on the day, it could be up to 25 or 30 miles as a crossing.

7:25:077:25:11

-And this is on water. That's not just on the road.

-Exactly.

7:25:117:25:14

-It's incredible.

-A marathon is 26.2 miles.

7:25:147:25:17

That's sort of a marathon distance.

7:25:177:25:19

-You've in fact run the London Marathon.

-Yes.

-Is it different?

7:25:197:25:21

Well, Radz, I wish I was running the London Marathon again.

7:25:217:25:24

Because I never thought I'd say that but this is quite a bit harder

7:25:247:25:27

because it's all about the arms and legs, this one.

7:25:277:25:30

We thought, Greg thought, it was going to be,

7:25:307:25:33

like, leg strength and running, but actually there's a lot of pushing.

7:25:337:25:36

So I've really had to get into that gym.

7:25:367:25:38

-That's me running on the Peaks.

-That's a great shot, I love that.

7:25:387:25:41

I'm going to get very cold, very wet and I'm going to set off

7:25:417:25:43

at about one in the morning, we think.

7:25:437:25:45

-So it's going to be cold, wet and dark.

-How the guns looking, Linds?

7:25:457:25:48

They're fine.

7:25:487:25:49

I'm not quite Radzi Chinyanganya yet, but I'm getting there.

7:25:497:25:52

Linds, we're going to be behind you every step of the way,

7:25:527:25:55

we really are. I say that, we're going to be in that cafe, actually.

7:25:557:25:57

Drinking hot chocolate, exactly.

7:25:577:25:59

I'm going to this way and talk to chief engineer, and my hero, Grant.

7:25:597:26:02

-Hello. Good to see you, Grant.

-How you doing?

7:26:027:26:04

-Now, you've build this amazing machine, haven't you?

-Yes.

7:26:047:26:06

Have you ever build anything like this?

7:26:067:26:08

Nothing quite like this, no.

7:26:087:26:10

Which means we better do so much testing and research

7:26:107:26:12

to make sure this is actually safe on the water.

7:26:127:26:14

I should say, while I've been getting really fit and healthy

7:26:147:26:17

and spending months on this, Grant has been building this.

7:26:177:26:20

You've been working so hard with your brother, James,

7:26:207:26:22

and it really does look incredible.

7:26:227:26:24

So talk us through this wave-running machine.

7:26:247:26:26

So all the red sections here are the steel structure.

7:26:267:26:29

That actually holds everything together.

7:26:297:26:31

We've got the blue paddles here.

7:26:317:26:33

So that actually turns your walking motion inside into kind of like

7:26:337:26:36

a waterwheel, and gives you traction on the water and moves you along.

7:26:367:26:40

The final thing on the end, we've got the foam buoyancy stabilisers.

7:26:407:26:43

They help you in any adverse weather - so waves, wind.

7:26:437:26:46

Anything that might cause this to topple over,

7:26:467:26:49

they'll keep you safe inside.

7:26:497:26:50

It's basically a giant seaworthy floating hamster ball, isn't it?

7:26:507:26:54

-Kind of, yes.

-Listen, Team Wave-Runner.

7:26:547:26:56

I think we can do this, Grant.

7:26:567:26:57

-You're going to be there on the day, aren't you?

-Looking forward to it.

7:26:577:27:00

-Thank you for coming on Blue Peter.

-Guys, do we think she can do it?

7:27:007:27:03

ALL: Yes!

7:27:037:27:06

-Thank you.

-There's a long way to go yet though, isn't there?

7:27:067:27:08

There is a long way.

7:27:087:27:10

And you can catch up with everything on the Blue Peter website.

7:27:107:27:13

-Make sure you head there. Shall I go get in?

-Yeah, get in!

7:27:137:27:16

-Get in, Linds!

-Why not? Get yourself ready, get used to it.

-Bye.

7:27:167:27:18

-Linds, we'll see you in Scotland.

-See you. Ah!

7:27:187:27:21

-So.

-That's it...

-Are you OK?

7:27:217:27:24

Lindsey has wind in there,

7:27:247:27:27

a bit like me after I've had a lot of baked beans.

7:27:277:27:29

It's time to talk about next week's show. What's coming up, Barn?

7:27:297:27:31

Well, you think we'd be sick of pancakes,

7:27:317:27:33

but we've got a really cool race next week.

7:27:337:27:35

I'm going to do a pancake race. I'm going to be crepe-ing over the line!

7:27:357:27:38

-No?

-Eh... No.

-OK, fine.

7:27:387:27:40

Let's talk about the greatest British cycling Olympian

7:27:407:27:42

of all time, Sir Chris Hoy.

7:27:427:27:44

He's getting his hands on us in our brand-new challenge.

7:27:447:27:47

Have a great week. We'll see you next week.

7:27:477:27:48

-Lindsey, be safe in there..

-Bye!

7:27:487:27:50

Give us a big cheer, everybody and wave goodbye.

7:27:507:27:52

See you later.

7:27:527:27:53

The team launch a huge new sporting competition - join us to find out how to take part! Sir Chris Hoy sets a speedy cycle challenge for Barney and Radzi in aid of Sport Relief, and there'll be some fun in the studio for Pancake Day!
