I am a fairly new follower of cycling on Eurosport. Why is it that Rob Hatch has to pronounce names of riders and places in accents that are not understandable to English speaking viewers? Watching the last stage of the Tour de Romandie, I gave up trying to understand the town of the finish. In the end I had to go to Google to find out where it was and it was nothing like the way he pronounced it! I have seen him defending these garbled pronunciations as 'respect', how about some respect for paying viewers! When he is pronouncing names and teams in a peleton you might as well not bother listening it is just garbled gobbledegook! The viewers in UK want to know what is going on and are poorly served by this commentator who seems more interested in pushing his linguistic qualifications than informing viewers what is going on, THAT is his job. BTW Ron Bahrain has never been pronounced Baaahhhrain!
