Eurosport commentary

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.
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.
 
Reactions: Axel Hangleck
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.

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.

And yeah I switched over to Dunkerque as well. It felt strange listening to Kirby doing a fairy minor race while "Sideshow Rob" was with the lads on Giro duty.
 
While that stage was on in the background I watched the MTB from Albstadt on Red Bull TV; and what a change to see everyone on site; commentary, post show/analysis. I fear under Discovery/Eurosport we may get the UK studio based commentary, as we see in Road/CX races.
