My point was there are a lot of people on here whose native language is not English and appreciate that he might be hard to understand at times as he does like to mumble his words. His insights are great and his predictions (Bettiol, Asgreen for the the Ronde, for example) are always worth keeping bearing in mind if you like a long odds bet.
It took me years to understand Kelly clearly. For American English speakers, his accent is very difficult.

I enjoyed this exchange from the Dauphine:

On the Saturday, Kirby asked Smith for his predictions and Smith got really pissy and complained it had just been sprung on him and he needed some time.

So the next day Kirby says to Smith, "so you've had all night to think of this, what are your predictions for the stage?"

Dunno, who that Dutch female is that's right now in Belgium but she's quite good. I first heard her during that Roeselare classic with Gitsberg that (who else) Merlier won. She has a great, calmy voice which is great for a commentator. She seems to have a decent sense of humour (at least for me). However, she also has a great and clearly understandable (looking at you Kelly) accent with a high "a" sound and somehow manages to make one of the ugliest languages in the world (Dutch) with its throat-destroying gurgling sound very elegant.

She makes it sound really boring though.

It is Jose Been ! She's a well-researched commentator and the one who got Quinn Simmons into trouble on twitter.

It was a typo smart ass ....you must be perfect

Dont read my posts and dont reply ...I would prefer if you would ignore because I am putting you on ignore ...
I think Evenepol will go for it
I didnt attack Evenepol and say he has the race craft of a brick
What is more he will beat the over hyped Evenepol in races like this is in the future
So its Almedia's and Evenepol;s ( the new Hinault, the once in a generation cyclist who will put on the pink and never take it off again) to lose now !! 1&2 like Sunweb last year I guess
I think that poll is just another opportunity for Evenepol fans to keep the hype high...Why leave out Yates and Bernal ?
Evenepol didnt have much left imo ...Since Masnada and Almedia rode for him and he didnt finish it off and of course QS wanted pink
Well, the list goes on and on, so it doesn't look like a typo. Sorry to have offended you.
