Really enjoying the whole package of the Tour of Utah 'Tour Tracker' coverage, in some ways more user friendly than the TdF one anyway. Ok, camera work iffy at times, but the stats and info around the picture is really good.
Just stop the endless chatter and I would be alright with it all in all. No mention of the headwind. Schopp is doomed, but what an effort. Well done.

Tschopp is descending quite well, as he's been doing in the past.
That last "downhill" is just like riding windy flats in a hard gear. It's about power, not descending skills. I'm not sure a single rider who's been in a long break will have the power to pull it off. Sadly, I see another bunch sprint today.

The coverage has improve from the problems of the first day. I really enjoyed the TTT yesterday. Stage 5 and 6 are going to be tops.;)

The finishing shot was disappointing
They did same the first day. I think the videographers at the finish and the producer have never covered a bike race. They have two fixed camera's at the finish, but keep using the helo shot.:confused:

My feed paused with 500 to go. I thought they were gonna go into commercial. Hey, I've seen it happen during New Years countdown, so why not.

That's quite an impressive performance there! He finally got the tactics and the position right this time.

BMC failing again, as expected after a perfect leadout. :eek:

Pretty much a straight in sprint with just one corner. Too bad they could not have routed through the Research Park.

In case anyone's wondering, that's not humid air hiding the mountains in the background. That's full blown smog from one of the brush fires around here. Hopefully, they put them out, cause tomorrow's stage is heading in their direction.

In addition to being hot, the air currently sucks in Utah.
 
The viewing quality of the feed is gorgeous but you didn't miss much as the finish line shots were quite ambiguous and anticlimactic.:(

It was hard to see what happened.

Crazy how that slipped away from BMC though....not surprised.

It's pointless having a perfect leadout if you don't actually have a sprinter in your team.

Apparently the jury's been a little too strict, they've taken three riders out of the race for hanging onto (team) cars.

They sure know how to treat foreign teams who spend a lot of effort to race here,
not knowing that in America touching a car means being kicked out of the race immediately. :rolleyes:
