I know that this is in the road race section, but CK excelled himself in the new Track Champions event from Majorca today. In the very first race, he persistently confused the Russian rider with the Polish one: Both riders had very large numbers, their national flag on their arms, kit reflecting national colours (red with blue and white for the Russian, white with red for the Pole) Gazprom in large letters on the Russian guy's chest at exactly the moment the co-commentator was talking about advertising space on the kit, and captions on the screen as each rider was shown.

Does he do any research before he starts commentating?
Does he look at the thing he is talking about?
And does he ever admit his mistakes?

I loved his rhetorical question near the end of the event too: "Only 2 points between first and second, how close is that?"
Errr, it's a difference of two points, Carlton.

In his defence, the kits may have been in the country colours, but they were pretty horrible.

I only watched the first 90 minutes of it, but I didn't understand why they suddenly cut away from Hatch and Laura Kenny.
I assume Hatch and Kenny were the commentators for the UCI whereas Kirby and Rowsell-Shand were doing it for EurosportGCN and eurosport were having sound issues agaaaiinn...
