Dekker is half Australian though, so I assume he might have spoken more English as a child than Been, Bäckstedt and Kirby.Interesting commentary team for the final couple of stages of l'Avenir on British Eurosport. José Been is obviously a regular lead commentator, but alongside her will be fellow dutchman and former junior cx world champ Jens Dekker. Obviously we've had two commentators whose English isn't their first language commentating together (Been and Bäckstedt) but probably haven't had two who both speak the same first language.
They took the world feed comms for once, on which Boulting was flying solo. I expect it was through gritted teeth as they had exhausted all their other options. Personally, I wish they would do it more often on races which are only on GCN+ and not Eurposport, where they don't have to factor in throwing to ad breaks. I have tried to give Jez Cox the benefit of the doubt but am afraid he doesn't quite cut it for me.Hearing Ned Boulting on Eurosport/GCN is different!
I generally don't mind Blythe, but he does occasionally come out with some 'interesting' things and yesterday was one of them.I'm not one to moan about commentators, but Adam Blythe was chatting pure s**t on the breakaway today
