But we have Wiggins on site for analysis which consisted of time trailing being the Race of Truth and that the guy who won the time trial is the strongest in the race and will win it.Call me old fashioned, but I prefer commentary on site at the venue; the analysis is fine from a studio. I understand under Covid times that remote commentary was needed, but not now.
The World feed commentary are on site, and a shame we can't select it.
Did you catch him on Ewan's crash the other day? "Caleb went down. It looked like he had a crash."

Yesterday was a day made of Kirby. We could have found out all types of useless facts about Hungary and he would have had a bit of banter with Kelly. Hatch is poor on banter..it's all either semi-serious stuff or a bunch of shrieks,But at least the roadside fans get to see more of the race. Sideshow Rob says.
This is generally the problem with having them broadcast from England as they're not able to give little anecdotes about bumping into riders or team officials or tell us about a cool cafe, stunning scenery or whatever. There's so many boring days in GTs that you need a bit of colour.Sideshow Rob did his best on useless facts about Hungary but he needed more than just the road book and its three or four facts which he kept recycling (that Best Town Square of 2017 one was ace, even the seventh time he said it).
Things got so bad yesterday I actually switched over the Dunkerque, where Kirby and Smithy were droning on.
