tbc = I don't know!Cycle Chic said:Argyll Flyers post - on the future races - TBC looks promising - it could mean Kirby hasnt got a foothold as he used to. I think Eurosport UK have finally got the message that viewers are not willing to suffer incompetents waffling their way through races.
Cycling has now become so popular that they are 'getting their act together'.
Dan Lloyd's in Italy doing the Giro with Kirby and will be there the 3 weeks. Matt Stephens is also in Italy for Eurosport (though could easily be flying back in time for sunday night).HelloDolly said:I think Calafornia will be Dan Llyod and Magnus Backstead
That was Jonathan Harris-Bass. He's in charge of providing "interesting" bits of info from back in the Eurosport studios. He does cycling commentary occasionally, as well as volleyball and I think also tennis.PeterB said:Towards the end of yesterday's stage when Nibali attacked Eurosport lost sound of Hatch's commentating for a minute or so and someone else stepped into the broadcast with surprisingly good knowledge of riders and race situation. For a while it even seemed like an improvement over Hatch. Do we know who it was?
I really don't think it's their fault - the commentators for this are at the finish and the reliability of the connection will be due to on-site problems.hazaran said:Eurosport for a second time in the row losing their commentators at the crucial moment. It's brilliant that in their incompetence they still have the ability to surprise us, because never announced ad breaks have somewhat lost their excitement.
Well, now we get some commenting on the actual racing (which has been pretty unworthy of commenting to be honest) instead of just a lot of outrageous stories that are probably only semi-true... It can get a bit silly at times although it is quite entertaining. They just tend to have a hard time finding the balance in my opinion.Valv.Piti said:Landren to win the Giro.
Sucks that Brian Holm only commented the first few stages in Sardinia, but I think I heard he will be back after Cali.
