    Sky are covering Jane Tomlinson’s ride from Rome to Leeds. Ian Dovasten is with Jane and has been since Sky started covering Jane’s battle with cancer.

    Jane and her partner left Rome this morning (Monday) and was live with Ian at 5.45pm from Viterbo – 55 miles from Rome

    But I am just wondering if Ian is riding with them – or jumping into a Sky link-up van and driving to the live destination?

    Well, when Ian covered Jane’s ride from Lands End to John o’ Groats (sp?) he did the cycle ride. During the interview on Live at Five, Anna or Chris mentioned it and Ian replied that he was cycling and didn’t now how Jane managed it.

    yesterday he was all dressed up in cycle gear and on a bike, so the illusion is that he is cycling with her – whether that is the actual case, only they know!

    Ian Dovaston is a proffesional journalist and wouldn’t set about to deceive the viewer in that way. The last journalist to do that, and get caught, was James Forlong. Need I say more.

    I wonder if Ian has shared some of the cycling with Jane – I noticed she was riding a tandem

    Yes! In fact, at least once in the long piece with the chilled music, I was sure that Ian was on the back of the tandem while Jane’s brother was on the single bike. They were all wearing yellow macs though, I think in a ploy to hide this!

    She rides with somebody she knows, I really can’t remember who (could be her brother).

    Ian and the camera man have their own bikes.

    It is her brother, Luke.

    I know Ian has his own bike, but I think he sometimes hops on the tandem wth Jane.

    Could be wrong though.

    I’m using my memory from the original UK ride, so could be incorrect. You quite obviously have superior knowledge that me in this area, and bow in your presence

    Is Ian still on the journey? I haven’t seen him for days and live links seem to just be with Jane.

    As far as I recall, they said he’ll stay with her all the way, unless something else came up!
