More likely saying the wrong name than mixing up the people: we had Sean Roche on the break in Stage 20 at one point.

It happened.

How is that even possible? Sergio is wearing Colombian national jersey, Sebastian isn't.

I note from Rob Hayles's Twitter feed that the Bike Channel has folded in the UK. Not a huge loss given the poor picture quality and relatively little live action, but a shame nonetheless.

The continental team they sponsored is apparently hoping to continue.

I would miss it. Wonder what caused it to fail ?

I didn't watch it for a minute, but I'm guessing the highlighted bit played a part.

I can't quite figure out why I love Argylflyer's (sp?) continual updates throughout the season. I might be missing something, but the updates seem so arbitrary and I can't figure out the purpose.
With that said, I love every single one of them.

Habit really! It makes a nice record at the end of the season, keeps the thread bobbing along and actually makes me watch some of the smaller races I might so easily forget to look out for. I also hope it provides interest to a few!

(And it's Argyll as in the place rather than the pattern). There's even a boat called Argyll Flyer!

Coppa Bernocchi wasn't shown on British ES as far as I know.

Re: Lombardia - the Eurosport tv guide is here:
http://www.eurosport.co.uk/tvschedule.shtml

Scroll to Sat 7th October and then the afternoon section. Eurosport 1 has snooker and superbikes in the afternoon. ES2 may have an error in listings as the U17 football at 12.15 is supposedly a 2 hr programme. A repeat of Diamond league athletics starts at 4.30pm. It's possible it's on from 2.15 to 4.30pm. The (hopefully repeat) is at 8pm on ES2. It currently shows the U17 football being on from 12.15 to 4.30pm.

On the Sky TV guide there are also Emilia and Beghelli live in the weekend, if will be only for Italy it's the first time we have something more than others, usually it's less.

Yeah nothing on over here - superbikes seem to pretty mcuh dominate and not even highlights of those races. Might be on ES Player though.
