It is Really annoying listening to Kirby and the Bias for an Anglo rider. It gets Tiresome :(
I like the other one, is it Rob Hatch or something? Very well informed and quite objective.
And that Scoth technical commentator, very well prepared, is it Brain Smith maybe?
Yes, Brian Smith is the Scottish technical commentator, and I think a great analyst. I also like Rob Hatch for the live commentary. Carlton Kirby can be fun in the right dosage. He really goes nuts for the Brit riders, though. Primoz popped his balloon, today. :lol:

How disgusting they try to make him put on a MS Blue jersey! What a Muck Up!
A screw-up sure, but out-right disgusting?
Yeah, why not bring out the blank one first? I find it disgusting to try and make him put on an incorrect team jersey as the GC winner :(. Don't teams pay to see Their Name up there?
Yeah, but of course it was a mistake. What would they gain from giving him the wrong jersey?

And the trident is indeed the best trophy. That's probably why Alaphilippe didn't care much that he didn't win. He already has the devil's trident which he stole in last year's Tour! :D

Certainly for the Brits first and foremost but also the Australians, Americans, etc.

Hatch and Smith are great :).

Well at least they got him a good one for the trophy presentation and played the correct anthem :)
 
Excellent race with a fitting conclusion.
Even though Yates couldn't keep the jersey, his performance confirmed MS' tt improvements. And Rogla made a clear statement during the last three weeks.
The Giro will be packed with high-quality contenders.

I'm almost 100% sure that Yates will win this race. Gap between top 20 is not that big. We are talking 20 seconds.
How can this be possible? :D
Wait and see. :D

If he doesn't win, you can pick my avatar.
What avatar will Escarabajo pick I wonder? :)

I love this one! :)

Great win by Roglic. Can't wait for the Giro.
 
Chapeau Roglic & Jumbo - 0.3 of a second is still a winning margin! :) Tough for A Yates - but it shows how important the TT skills are for the top riders.
Roglic was 4 th at TdF last year so a podium spot is possible at the Giro, but I'm believing he'll be out climbed on the longer climbs so a win will take some Nibali type voodoo.
