Note: Contents: The secret cycle scoop -- The photo finish 'The Secret Cycle Scoop': Daisy came fifth in the tryouts, so she's the squad's first reserve, and despite training and hanging out as usual, Fergus can sense his best friend isn't herself. There's another mystery too - a rival newspaper keep getting exclusive cycling scoops. So who is the snitch? Fergus heads to Nevermore to consult his dad - only to find that Princess Lily is also in a spot of bother with some dragons. 'The Photo Finish': It's competition time! The Hercules Hopefuls are at the International Championships at last - but how will Fergus cope with the competition pressures now that his best friend Daisy has moved away? When Fergus escapes to Nevermore to see some friendly faces, it's not better there - Princess Lily is cross with her brother, and there's a bet on which cycling team will win that could see King Woebegot lost his kingdom.

Note: After their amazing win at the National Championships, Fergus and the rest of the Hercules' Hopefuls are keen to get back to training as a team - it was brilliant to lift the trophy alongside the Wallace's Winners, but now that Calamity Coogan and Minnie McLeod are back on form, the two teams want to go back to competing against each other rather than together. But - to everyone's disgust - the Board are adamant: the team that won the Nationals is the only one that can compete in the upcoming Internationals. So in order to qualify, the two teams must work together as a squad. Wesley is furious and Fergus is disgusted, so Grandpa and Choppy come up with a plan: a training weekend in the Highlands to help them bond. But as soon as the two teams arrive at the boarding lodge the squabbles break out again.

Note: Fergus Hamilton gets a rusty old bike for his ninth birthday from his mum and granddad. It's not the flashy Sullivan Swift he'd longed for - but when it's all cleaned up and he takes it for a test run, he discovers something amazing. When the pedals turn backwards, Fergus and his dog, Chimp, are magically transported to Nevermore, a land where cycling is banned by the wicked King Woebegot. He meets the ever enthusiastic Princess Lily, has an amazing adventure bunny-hopping on his bike over the Swamp of Certain Death and outwitting the Knights of No-Nonsense and their Hounds of Horribleness, and lands back in the real world with a bump. Fergus still has to complete the time trial to join the local cycling team though - can Grandpa Herc and his best friend Daisy help him realise that he doesn't need magic to succeed, and that hard work, a bit of patience and some help from his friends can do the trick?

Note: A new coach is needed - but what can a wheelchair basketball champion teach Fergus and friends about cycling? Fergus is sure their new coach is going to be his ultimate hero, cycle champ 'Spokes' Sullivan, so when Grandpa introduces Charlotte Campbell, the children are all less than impressed. Charlie is the successful captain of the Paralympic wheelchair basketball team and has some interesting training methods. She gets the team doing yoga and wheelbarrow races, and enters them in the Wreck-It Run, a charity race where everyone creates their own adapted bikes from parts and must compete in pairs. Fergus is sure Charlie is off her rocker - how will this help them get faster for the International time trials?

He is also the first member of the Hercules Hopefuls cycling team, set up by Grandpa Herc to fight off their arch rivals, Wallace's Wheels. Fergus's friend Daisy would love to join the team too, but she doesn't have a bike - her mum thinks everything fun is dangerous. Maybe Grandpa Herc and Fergus can do up a bike from scratch for Daisy, with parts from Grandpa's junk shop? Now it is just Daisy's mum they need to persuade. Meanwhile Fergus takes a magical trip to Nevermore, where he and Princess Lily discover a magical compass bell once owned by Fergus's dad. Can the bell provide a clue to the whereabouts of Fergus's long-lost Dad?
