Nothing beats Sporza and RTBF though!
Rtbf has the greatest cyclist to have ever lived as a commentator. Yup, Eddy Merckx. It's in French though. And Sporza is in Dutch.
I dont know. England is probably the country most hostile to road cycling in the whole world. And yet British Eurosport show absolutely everything. Their comentators spend more time away from home than the cyclists. They have 4 main commentators, and 4 backup ones just in case, and while i have minor problems with them (namely claiming conti lost the tour when he lost 15 secs to menchov/ samu) they are it appears better than this phil and paul combo we keep hearing about every race thread. Sure, they arent eddy mercx, but who the f**k is, besides kelly has had some achievments too.
Just about the only event they didnt have this year was the tour down under (big deal) but now it appears they bought that for next year as well.
They even have nothing races like the tour of oman, tour of quatar, tour of turkey.
And their tdf coverage, oh madone
, it is eurosports signature event. They have adverts for it all year round. They show live the route unveiling, the team presentations, show half the stages from the roll out, going live at 9 am, the others from the 150k to go mark, have commentators based in paris, in london, at the finish, at the start, along the route.
If cycling is your religion, eurosport is the highest altar ( may be a bit dramatic, but its the closest im ever going to get to being in a church)
