I have reached the conclusion that Thomas Bay and Jesper Worre has been living under a rock. Somehow they missed the Archbold to Bora news.
I don't think Bay is living under a rock. A bit embarrassing that he had missed this news item but he is usually very well-informed.
Seems like he took a vacation, then.
Hasn't he been commenting cycling races almost every day this year?

Not literally. In the "keeping up with things" sense.
Though, maybe the fact that he's been so busy, means he hasn't had time to check the news.
 
10 km to go in Turkey: Ewan is possible injured, so Kirby suggests he may not be the man for Lotto today. Proceeds to highlight Carl Fredrik Hagen, who is not in the race, and Roger Kluge, the heaviest bike rider imaginable, for the final ramp. I feel bad for the people who get their cycling 'education' through watching Eurosport.
 
Phenomenal race today but Declan and Sean were totally misled by the gaps at 1.5km to go. We see exactly where the leaders are in a shot that handily has some yellow signs in it as the leaders have this ahead of them right before there's a cut to all the chasers who can also see the signs, but the gaps are shown as 21 sec to Kwiat and 28 sec to the bunch. On a milk float maybe!

So it would seem that Jonathan Edwards has got the flick as Eurosport UK's anchor for the grand tours and will be replaced by Orla Chennaoui. Having a knowledgeable journalist in charge rather than a fanboy is a Good Thing, in my book.
 
Who is Orla Chennaoui anyways? Always found her a bit annoying in the Cycling Podcast.

For the Danes, Brian Holm and Thomas Bay will comment the Giro with Staehlin and Worre in the studio. That is a pretty nice setup, espcially with Worre out and Holm in, Bay and Holm has a great chemestry and I still havent forgiven Worre for *** Rasmussen over back in 2007.

I too find Oral C very annoying ..her voice and her constant laughing at nothing ...
Jon Edwards grew on me to be honest ...would prefer him to her

And Holm isn't going to run off to California first?

Holm and Bay are commentating on Kanal 5.
And for some reason they dropped the uninterrupted coverage with Danish commentartors part...
Thanks! I simply cannot listen to that guy, its insane how much he pisses me off. Never listened to such a downright horrible commentator!
