And plugged his next book. GCN - ad-free cycling?Captain Motormouth is doing Cataluyna with Smithy. He's already guffawed at several of his own jokes and stories.
They are constantly plugging Zwift, Strava and Wahoo, so just being editorially consistent.And plugged his next book. GCN - ad-free cycling?

HIs notes were all over the place today - Smith had to put him right at least twice on how far it was to the top of the penultimate climb despite it being shown on screen.Kirby is worse than ever. he loves to say something completely inaccurate and then repeat it constantly, like how today's last descent was 26k long despite it starting with 34k to go and there was still a 12km finish climb. thank god for GCN's multiple language tracks. i switched over to spanish and i don't even understand spanish.
Even on the slow-mo replay Kirkby didn't seem to notice Remco and the Uno-X guy having at one and other and had to have Smith point it out. Something's up with the old codger.
Yes, a good duo. They both have a large amount of experience of speaking/presenting. It is more like a conversation about the bike race, as they have the both the ability to do the lead role and expert role.Matt and Dan doing Dwars, these guys need to be put together much more frequently in my opinion.

I like Jose and Matt commentating together, but they do get quite tangential sometimes!
Was it Danni Christmas commentating on the GP Indurain? Whoever it was, someone needs to have a word with her about overuse of "the man from Spain", "the man from Bora Hansgrohe", "the Man from Uncle"...
In which countries is this "world feed" available? Don't most broadcasters use their own commentary team?Stephens & Hatch on for 'World feed'.....I wish it was made available for Eurosport/GCN viewers......Instead we have to tolerate Kirby et al....
I'm currently visiting South Africa and the world feed with Stephens/Hatch is on here. It seems that Supersport (the satellite broadcaster with the sub-Saharan Africa rights) use the world feeds for races and never provide their own comms. Guess there are other smaller broadcasters around the world who do the same.In which countries is this "world feed" available? Don't most broadcasters use their own commentary team?
In fairness to her, she spent most of her career within the domestic scene in the UK, only in the last year of her active career was WNT (the team she largely rode with) an international team (it's now Ceratizit). Dani Christmas was also something of a veteran of the UK domestic scene but she also spent four years riding overseas in a variety of other scenes, such as with Bizkaia-Durango and Lotto-Soudal, so she's got a bit more insight of the different national teams and scenes than Walker does.Hannah Walker is very well informed when it comes to calling men's races - Reckon she knows more about the men's peleton than the women's peleton.
The words we all dread to hear "and let's hand over to Carlton Kirby".
