And those cyclinghub guys would be elite, top 1% posters here in terms of knowledge. Puts into perspective what a great job Kirby is usually doing.

On a different note, how did Reichenbach do today?

Both of them are pretty bad to be honest (if it's the Dane and the Scot)
Norwegian I think? How come they've started chatting over the stream anyway? I'm back to hunting down streams "manually" now since I like to actually hear the race noise.
Dane. Jesper.
There are two.
The other is Scottish. David Hunter.

They really wouldn't, their previews are very bad, but I get your point.

I appreciate their effort, but seriously... One of them just can't shut up and 50% of what he says is rubbish. I'd rather listen to the Norwegian narrators (and I don't speak a single word of Norwegian !!).
then why didn't you use another stream?! lol...

Um? The other is apparently called Remi, like I said I think he's Norwegian.

They only do this because there is no English broadcasting for the Tour de Romandie. In every other race they will again just stream the Eurosport commentary.
I see.

Had to let the group go during the last selection 4 - 5 kms. to the finish.
Strong ride considering his team duties. He has the talent.

Then it must be a new one. That guy never commented.

Can also be the second owner who is Dutch.

In the previews, yes it's David Hunter.

In this streams, the other guy is Norwegian, it's Remi from Firstcycling.
Hunter doesn't just do previews. Until today I've never even heard of this Remi guy, the Scottish one used to commentate with Jesper.

But I stand corected, then.

Nope, maybe Scottish guy, he knows a lot about sprints and sprinttrains, but the other guy isn't exactly the most knowledgeable.
I can't stand Kirby, that's why I usually go for a Sporza stream, I'm only able to understand a few words, but that's fine.

Well they aren't getting paid for it.
Sure, but they are mostly clueless about cycling. They could at least learn a bit about the sport and its history, the races and the riders before commentating.

Not the two who commentated today. Both Scandinavian as they mentioned. One was Norwegian.

What about giving some credit to a guy who provide a HD stream without understandable commentary ? So he wants to add more value by covering the stream with his comments. Sounds pretty brave and nice to me. But you would probably be better at this job.. And as well said. For free.
I appreciate their service. (on sidenote the owner does make money from website revenue so it's not like he's doing it all just for fun)

Doesn't mean I cant comment on the quality of their commentating which lacks coherence and especially Jasper fella seem to fail to understand cycling much with his curious remarks. The other guy at least states the obvious without sounding stupid. I still like listening to it because Im used to the commentary, but the level of it is pretty low, that's all.

I keep hoping the guy who talks too much learns to take it easy. If he can do that, they'll be OK. But I do miss the ambient race noise...

The Scottish guy knows slightly more than the Dane, but he is a huge Sky fanboy so that evens it out :D

Scots in general are huge fans of everything Rupert Murdoch.

I was talking about today stream. Remi is the 'boss' of Firstcycling, great site btw.

What makes me cringe is that they a) claim to be huge fans, but then proceed to not know basic things, and b) keep talking about their own fantasy cycling teams.
 
I'lll admit the main cyclinghub guy can be a bit annoying at times but he's not a professional and maybe he'll learn that he doesn't have to talk all the time (silence is ok from time to time) and get a bit better. I appreciate what he does and that they offered English commentary even if it wasn't perfect.

I don't expect to get tons of knowledge from a cycling commentator. Frankly we have more of that here so pretty much everybody sounds clueless at times. And I certainly don't mind a little misidentification as it's just hard to tell sometimes. I really just want to be entertained which is why I'm one of the few around here who likes Kirby - he entertains me and usually is partnered with someone with a bit of inside knowledge.
