The Bouchard/Latour mixup is classic Kirby - he predicts how the race is going to unfold and then commentates to that template rather than what is actually happening until Kelly or someone puts him right.I have a love/hate relationship with Kirby. Very engaging, but just crap at identifying riders. Like yesterday, the Bouchard/Latour mixup was bad (and why is he suddenly calling him Pierre-Roger?), but how on earth could he think that Pernsteiner was Domen Novak some 3-4km from the finish?
Latour is on his list of favorites (the Si Clarke memorial list) and often makes the list of predicted protagonists.
