ABSTRACT
JOHN McCRIRICK, one of the best known faces in racing broadcasting, has hit out at Channel 4 after it was revealed he will not be part of the station's new team which take over sole terrestrial broadcasting of the sport from January 1. Big Mac plus fellow C4 presenters Derek Thompson, Mike Cattermole and Alistair Down have also missed out while John Francome had already ruled himself out of a role in the new-look team led by Clare Balding, who moves from the BBC.
