Had to rewind to check, but Tony Gibb really did just refer to the Binckbank stage 1 winner as Yabio Facobsen. Never thought I'd be pining for Kirby but ...

Kirby loves this race, as do I.
I pine for the days I could watch Kirby wax poetic at the Brinck-Brank-whatever-you-call-it Tour.
Methinks it's time to start a petition to get him back into the pilot chair.
I will go door -to-door in my neighbourhood if need be.
Who's with me?
....guys? You there?
TMP 402?
Let's get this done!

Not sure where to put this but it blows my mind that Eurosport shows the Tour of Hungary and not races like Tour of Switzerland and Romandie
Both shown on British Eurosport this year - if not where you are, it's a local right thing. From 2013-2015 Sky had the rights in UK.TdS has been live for a few years now.

Any Player users around? Anyone having trouble with logging in?
It keeps telling me that "something went wrong", which I've kinda figured, but I can't find out what
I sometimes have to use a new browser. My player in Chrome is stuck in some kind of weird neither logged in nor not logged in limbo.

I have had issues with Firefox repeatedly and have switched to Edge this last few weeks. Had issues logging in but was mainly with the 'on demand' section - kept getting stuck on diarrhoea relief ads! Seems to have moved on to a Prime one now, a bit more stomachable!

I'm already on Edge, and it worked quite fine earlier today… :confused:

Ah! Tried it in Chrome, it worked!
Right on the gravel.

Back to normal I see with the Vuelta. With the host broadcaster only offering a couple of hours of live coverage on most stages, CK will be manning the booth back in the UK. I see that "little" Louis Meintjes is riding - how far in will we get before he is castigated for leaving Qubeka for Lampre?

And then lauded for returning to Qubeka (now Dimension Data)?
 
Sorry for hijacking this thread for stuff that isn't technically about Eurosport commentating, but am I understanding the scheduling correctly here?
At 13:16 ("Danish time") they'll start showing stage 9 of Tour de l'Avenir live on Eurosport 1, then - at 15:00 - they'll switch over to Deutschland Tour, and after that switch back to l'Avenir? (With GP de Plouay shown on the Player at the same time.)
Or is the l'Avenir bit scheduled at 17:00 a recap/replay?

Today Magrini said that on the player they start an hour early with the Vuelta coverage.
It's becoming annoying that player thing, they're trying to force people pay for that.
Well that's not annoying, that's good marketing. The annoying thing is that their schedule shows less consistency than the mood of a pregnant woman.

Even more annoying is that changes to the schedule are not listed anywhere - not even on their website.
