    Igor Anton has crashed before the race started officially and broken his collarbone

    Either the rumours about Canc's bike were true and he's fit and racing again, or Eurosport are late and still showing motorbikes---- plus ca change.

    Meanwhile on Eurosport 2 Gilbert is showing his versatility by winning a snooker match.
    I think I might go back to bed until today makes a bit more sense.

    Eurosport 2 now showing the Tour of Turkey, where Ray Reardon, Steve Davis and Jimmy White have apparently not made the day's break.

    Is the local broadcaster taking the mickey playing interviews from before the race?! :evil:
  • LangerDanLangerDan Posts: 6,132
    Eurosport problem, I think (maybe Kelly has finally twatted Harmon?). Sporza is still showing the race
    'This week I 'ave been mostly been climbing like Basso - Shirley Basso.'
  • LangerDanLangerDan Posts: 6,132
    Cataldo looks lonely - must be annoying to have such good form and then have to sit up and wait for his slower companions

  • afx237viafx237vi Posts: 12,630
    Eurosport pictures but no sound. Why can't this ever happen when Carlton's on shift?

    Before the sound break up Harmon and Kelly were going on that the race isn't ridden like it used to be - i.e. boring.

    Decided it was because of teams racing for UCI points.


    Now have sporza commentary with eurosport HD feed. :)
  • afx237viafx237vi Posts: 12,630
    Somewhat implausibly, that new Pozzato advert on Eurosport HD is actually quite decent. Selle Italia, though, not Sidi.
  • emaddenemadden Posts: 2,431
    Ah Thats bollox JC :lol::lol::lol:

    I wish Kelly had let out some expletives :lol::lol::lol:

    So Rolland David Le Lay en Vasili Kirijenka are chasing the breakaway in no man's land.
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 47,267 Lives Here
    Well they made the breakaway.


    You'd imagine if the keep that pace up a few of the original break will be out the door.

    :shock: Danish Eurosport has just treated us to a story about Allen Peiper's granddad being a nazi war criminal.

    Eurosport has the bluntest interviewer ever. His question to Andy Schleck just now was basically "you've been rubbish in the past week, correct?" :lol:

    Sidi supported the Marshall Plan don't ya know. Oh right. Citi. Anyone else have to do a double take when that advert came on? I was genuinely interested to see some 200 year old Sidi's.

    Weather looks about like it is here!
    Just got back in, missed all the heavy rain!
    Remember that you are an Englishman and thus have won first prize in the lottery of life.
