Here in the US almost all of the XC skiing and biathlon coverage is commentator free. Just the sound of skis on snow.No. I do, however, hate watching teleshopping, and Eurosport International's XC skiing broadcast is basically a targeted ad campaign for Diggins with them making every race solely about her and cheerleading her as though there are no other athletes on the snow, making excuses for any time she doesn't win and shouting "COME ON JESS!" like a bunch of adolescent fanboys.
Evelyn Stevens and Katie Hall, for example, were riders I was very fond of.
