I think these stages belong in a GT, though. The problem to me is really that they get broadcasted in full, which makes viewers think they have to watch because they could miss something.
I watch these kind of GT stages in full (when possible) only for the scenery. Same reason I watch Tour of Norway :D
There's also a turism logic in play, especially in Italy. The bathing season is about to begin around the places you're watching in this stage! (dont now what kind of agreement there's between organizers and cites in terms of advertising but usually RAI tv spends some time giving info about the background)

Often I like the scenery as well... (I'm especially fond of green British hills with natural stone houses and Italian vineyards), but I hate when sports tv talk about food all the time like I'm watching a cheap cooking doc, and also their covering of the cultural highlights brings out the snobbish art historian in me. ;)
But judging by the comments they cite during the GTs many of the viewers want this. :anguished: Probably one of the best things about one day races...
 
no, her name actually is Birgit Hasselbusch. She's doing alright, for someone who has no cycling background (afaik). Some clever jokes there, every now and then
So she's the one I thought she is after all...? o_O
Well, I'm not content with her. :mad: I'm sure she's a nice person. I'd invite her over for coffee. But I don't like her in my commentary.

I'm more struggling with Voigt, to be honest. His stories from the old days are fine, and it's also kinda funny when he comes up with some historical details he seems to remember having learned in school, but he really has no tactical understanding of cycling at all

That's true, it's not only tactics, also facts, he's only bearable in combination with Aldag. But together I like them quite well.
