The Dr. Oz  Show airs Monday thru Friday right here on WFAA

Tonight for the third consecutive year, professional cycling will return to Dallas’ Victory Park. This year WFAA-TV (Channel 8) will present live coverage on WFAA2 of the TX TOUGH Grand Prix III, the largest such criterium cycling event in the southwest and the state of Texas. The TX TOUGH Grand Prix III begins at 7 p.m. after a series of pre-race festivities and events, and will be broadcast live on WFAA2. The station’s sub channel is available free, over the air, to viewers with antennas and either digital sets or converter boxes, as well as on Charter (Channel 101) and Time Warner Cable (Channel 371) systems. This year the TX TOUGH Grand Prix III serves as the ninth and final event on the USA CRITS (“Criterium Racing in the States”) calendar. Criterium racing is a unique form of cycling that features high-speed races staged in urban environments. Races routinely draw as many as 30,000 spectators watching cyclists compete at speeds up to 50 mph. The TX TOUGH Grand Prix III is one of two new events added to the 2010 USA CRITS Championship Series. Now in its fourth year, the USA CRITS Championship Series is comprised of the top pro cycling races across America. This year the TX TOUGH Grand Prix III will serve as the men’s finals with the Series champion to be crowned at the conclusion of the event. The field of riders at this year’s Grand Prix features some of the top names in cycling: the same athletes you’ll see in the Olympics, the Tour de France and other national and international events. Crowds will start gathering along the course on Houston Street in the afternoon on September 16 with pre race events beginning at 5 p.m. The TX TOUGH Grand Prix III is produced by Passion for Children’s, and exclusively benefits Children’s Medical Center of Dallas. Prior to the start of the Grand Prix there will special “grudge match” at 6:45 p.m. pitting WFAA sportscaster Dale Hansen and his TEAM WFAA (reporter Steve Stoler and meteorologist Greg Fields) against Gordon Keith and TEAM KTCK SportsRadio 1310 AM “The Ticket” (Keith, George Dunham, Craig Miller and Alexis Smith). Also joining TEAM WFAA will be the man millions of television viewers call “America’s Doctor,” better known as Dr. Mehmet Oz of The Dr. Oz Show. The 1-hour syndicated program premiered September 6 at 3 p.m. on WFAA. While the evening’s cycling events at Victory Park are free of charge, and people are encouraged to come see the excitement in person. There will also be a special half-hour highlights show, hosted by WFAA sports’ Joe Trahan with commentary by legendary cyclist Frankie Andreu, to air on WFAA on Saturday, September 18 at 6:30 p.m. after News 8 at 6 p.m. and prior to the start of the evening prime time schedule.
