I really like Kelly. He's knowledgeable and his accent is delightful. Harmon is okay, but for entertainment value I would prefer Phil to Harmon. As the 'anchor', Harmon's voice is annoying and he talks too much about the race. Phil can always provide brief entertainment by saying his cliches or making observations like "sitting cows is a sign of rain".

thats a pity really would be nice have some early season coverage.

On Sean i think the great thing is because he almost did it all, green jersey winner but also a grand tour winner he understands cycling from both viewpoints and not long out of the game that things have changed too much, Pity hes not more open about the past of cycling

For some reason I got it in Flemish...
Basically just tricks the internet into thinking you're in a different country. I know from being on vacation in Italy that if you log into Eurosport player from there you'll get Eurosport Italy rather than UK (you can flip between Italian and English commentary if you wish). A proxy will do the same job, but unfortunately won't transport you on vacation.

Yeah it seems many people absolutely loathe Liggett but I have listening to him since the Eighties and I don't mind him or Sherwen. Kelly and Harmon make a good combination like Kirby and Backstedt. Harmon on his own would be too much for me.

LOL!

I'm wondering when the Tour of Tahiti will happen.

Looks like no Omloop on Eurosport (or K-B-K). Other than Sporza+Belgian proxy server combo, where else can we watch this? One of my favourite races.
