Yeah road and occasional crit only this year.
not quite sure how you conclude that I dont think you are Kirby !! re-read my post !!the delgados said:So you finally realized that I'm not Carlton Kirby. How long did that take you? .Cycle Chic said:ahhhh Carlton you never fail to check this thread do you !! papping yourself that one day soon you will be shuffled off Eurosport to a shopping channel.the delgados said:This comment actually made me laugh. Not only does the poster seem like an entitled adolescent who is whining about not getting his or her way, the implication is s/he tuned in just to listen to the commentary.Cycle Chic said:You missed the Track Cycling which Kirby ruined !! couldnt watch it
Race? What race?
That's funny! Seriously, I lol'd.argyllflyer said:Kirby lovers and eagle-eyed haters alike might quite like this pic posted on Twitter yesterday by Ridevelo.cc
All platforms, but not all areas. Boo hiss.argyllflyer said:
Thankfully Australia hasn't gone that way for the majority of the high profile races. Giro fans like me have to pay as from last year when the rights expired.Koronin said:Now if only we could get coverage in the US. It appears we have 0 coverage on TV this year. NBC appears to have taken all races off TV and put them on their subscription streaming service.
Eurosport haven't had it for years though - rights were owned by BeInSports. Thetre's a fair amount coming our way afaik.Ferminal said:Isn't really much room on the Eurosport calendar at this time of the year is there (I guess no Qatar anymore so don't need to worry about the clash with the Olympics).

In the UK, Dubai is live on the first four days on ES2 at 09.30 GMT, it is bumped on the saturday through for speed skating.Nirvana said:On the Sky tv guide there are only the first two stages of Dubai Tour scheduled for the next two weeks, I fear that with Olympics they send all the cycling to the player.
This year at least in Italy there is also zero coverage of live cycling on Bike Channel that seems on the verge of bankruptcy according to what they said on the Italian forum.
The director has a habit of breaking off from the action to show a fountain or flowerbed etc - fine with 80km to go, less so with 6...the delgados said:Great to see my man Carlton Kirby in mid-season form at the Dubai tour.
He lost his mind when the host broadcaster kept going back to a shot of a turtle 6 km's from the finish of stage 2.
As the kids say nowadays, I lol'd.
There's no one at the finish line. There's no one who lines the route.Nirvana said:Usual RCS style camera work, they use one helicopter only to film these things.
We are lucky that in Dubai there aren't young girls, old men and baby childs near the finish line.
