Possibly old news. But just saw an ad saying The Giro will be live on Eurosport

Don't know if it's old or new news, but I would have bought a ****ing pitchfork, if the decision had been different.

Who was the chap commentating with Brian Smith at the weekend.

He is almost as annoying in his pronunciation of teams and riders as that guy Mike Smith they used to have back at the studio in Paris.

Astannnnnnnnnnnnnnnaaaaaaaaaaaa
A-she deuz air
Moosair

Now what was all that about. Is he a narrator of romantic novels or something?

Good moaning! Bon Jouree Rodney!

it's not old news.only thursday or so they signed the agreement
and the good news don't stop here
rcs races will have a lot more time on eurosport:
THREE HOURS for every giro d'italia stage...
and at least two hours for other races, tirreno, san remo, lombardia etc

eurosport,the home of cycling.



i hope though that in the future there will be mountain giro stages broadcast from start to finish like in le tour.

It's Rob Hatch, to be fair I like his consistent attempt to use the correct pronunciations, for example AG2R *is* "aah-jeh-deux-errr" rather than the anglified "eeh-gee-two-aar" used by Kirby and Harmon (or Hendon as they seem to be calling him this season?!).

Just a shame so few of them are live though at this point and Saturday's coverage of Strade Bianche was a mess, due to be on delayed for a 90 min broadcast but instead they came on 40 mins earlier than advertised and showed the last 40km live, but I'm sure I wasn't the only one to turn on at the advertised time only to see the last 20km. The highlights show then proceeded to show 40-35km then (I think) an edited version of the last 20 km again.

Because of the clash with Paris-Nice, only 4 out of the 7 Tirreno stages will be live. But as you say, there will be 2hrs of them.

As I said, 4 live, 3 not. There is live biathlon on and that means no live tirreno on those days. Paris-Nice is the one Eurosport are putting top priority so it stays live, tirreno goes delayed on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
