If my dad made dad jokes like Carlton Kirby I would run off from home.


Yeah, these are lowlights from the "dad joke" genre, I believe.

More worried that Kirby called Brian Smith 'Sean' on three occasions.

He does that all the time, anyone knows why? Another "joke"?

Really annoying voice.


Anthony McCrossan. He usually does the Cyclo-Cross for the YouTube stream, I wondered yesterday why he wasn't at the Jingle Cross. I had the same opinion as you at first, with time I got familiar with his voice.

Well it's about time he did. Thirty-year-olds need to get out of their parent's home.

While I'm here, can we give a quick round of applause to tpm90210?
He listens to Carlton Kirby so we don't have to.
Thanks, tpm. It really means a lot.
Or, as Sean Kelly would say, "Yeah, erm, uh, tpm has a lot to give. And er, uh, 90210 he really tells it like it is."

Beautiful, my good sir.

So the Austrian TV station ORF is broadcasting the WC which is always very funny because there is not one person in the ORF who has any clue about cycling. Therefore they always send their most stupid commentator, Peter Brunner, whom they don't need anywhere else, to the WC. So don't be surprised if I'll post a lot on this thread in the coming days. :D

So besides saying stupid things like "the streets are so narrow they could as well ride through houses" what annoys me most so far is that he doesn't understand how the graphic for the split times work. For example there were cases in which he thought the graphic shows that a rider is 8 minutes in front of the rider who had the best time so far and explained to the viewers that he excuses for the not working graphic since the rider has neither already reached the split time nor does he have an 8 minute advantage. Ofc what the graphic actually meant was that the rider still had 8 minutes to reach the split time if he wants to set the best time and the time was ticking down. :o

Peter Brunner: Chris Froome won a very hilly time trial in the vuelta in Logroñes and finished 3rd in a completely flat TT in Marseille in the tour.

Peter Brunner: Bora Hansgrohe is a team where soon half of the riders will be Austrians.

Sorry if I annoy with too many posts in this thread right now but it's just hard to let stuff like that uncommented.

The Danish commentators were surprised how well-behaved the spectators were and suggested that the high prices of alcohol in Norway might be the reason for that...

Carlton and Brian Smith could see Rohan Dennis had a prominent cut on his shin for the probably 10 seconds he was onscreen. They said nothing. Then minutes later, in trying to work out how he had lost time between intermediate checks, Carlton said "we didn't see any marks on him or anything".

Carlton: "Captain of his own ship, and destiny, is Tom Dumoulin, will he sail away, and how will he cope with the final climb?"
