Eurosport commentary

Stephens & Lloyd ... Eurosport please just make sure they commentate on every Race possible... or at least Grand Tours and Classics. They are by far the best, ex pro's with knowledge, a love for the sport, fans and bike reviewers...They just know what they are talking about
 
I wish, Kirby again today FW.
Usual performance , made the race less enjoyable.
Yep, watched it on playback. As soon as I heard Kirby, straight to mute and watched the last 15 minutes....it is Fleche Wallone after all.

Agree re Dan Lloyd/Matt Stephens combo, but either with Magnus Backstedt would be great as well. Funny when Lloyd and Stephens are on, it's hard to know which is supposed to be the actual commentator/analyst but it works well.
 
I think Matt Stephens is the lead commentator as he starts off the commentary at the beginning and rounds things up come the finish. Similar to how he was lead with Adam Blythe at Amstel. But Dan Lloyd was the lead commentator at Omloop and maybe another race, plus normally leads the discussion on the sofa on GCN Plus which does add to the small amount of confusion I guess.
 
Lol. Actually, I do think he says his first name wrong because he Anglifies it (at least in a video I have heard of him saying his own name). But the surname should have stress on the first syllable, not the second.
It's not wrong if that's how he says it, totally up to him to pronounce his name whatever way he prefers. I do suspect his mom doesn't call him pieter though.
 
A more important issue is Eurosport still on occasion having commentators calling from home - There have been at least 4 occasions where they've suffered technical difficulties so far in 2021 - You've gotta get them into a studio for remote commentary.

It is difficult with Hatch being in Mallorca, Been being in the Netherlands and two week quarantine being applied to anyone coming from abroad to the UK. It's probably almost as difficult with Smith up in Scotland and they only recently allowed travel to England again. I don't know whether hotels are open again properly so he might not be able to stay down in London for a week to xommentate on a stage race. Others pretty much are back to normal with Kirby and Stephens located in the Eurosport offices in London, and Blythe, Backstedt, Lloyd all based closer to Bath where the GCN offices are.

At the risk of stirring up a hornets nest.....not being in Europe or being able to get complete coverage of all the races, my one comment is be grateful for what you get.
You might not get any cycling coverage
Amen.
It really is fun to pick nits and call out commentator errors and eccentricities, but I submit that the majority of naysayers here would be begging to listen to someone like, say, my man CK within an hour after listening to North American GT commentary. The vast majority of broadcasts are as interesting as dry toast.

There is this thing called Tiz-cycling, or you can always use the GCNplayer or a VPN...
