oscar pereiro on cocaine is my jam though.

I could imagine that he wasn't that interesting as well. That said I will for sure try to catch him sometime in the season, after all its Alberto and who knows, maybe he will be good at it. Then the next problem will be to try to understand him... I love me some spanish commentary though, I can't remember his name, but I have seen countless video from the Vuelta on YT. Juan, or Pedro Delgado?

Not like there's no learning curve in that. Experts and former pro's are typically better as co commentators anyway. Especially in a sport like cycling.

I seem to remember Alberto doing some commentary for RTE during La Vuelta 2011, & quite frankly he meant business: very technical, talking about tactics, etc. perhaps he has to polish few things, perhaps joke a bit more, but he'd be alright :)
