So the official kick off of the Tour is live on ES2 today from 5.30pm and then switching to ES at 6.15pm. Will it top last year's AC boo fest in that mock Roman arena?

    Oh it's the dulcet tones of Alan partridge aka Carlton "and why not" Kirby and Brian "Tour Deeeee France" Smith.

    How is that new Saxobank/Tinkoff outfit allowed - it clashes with the yellow jersey.......God they have ruined the Greenedge strip as well.

    The band were the stick out thing for me too. It's like stepping into a time machine.

    Yeah that was a nice one. Guess they want a uniform look/recognisable brand thing, but it doesn't really work with the Norway flag.

    "Low key"? I'd say so.
    Such a small crowd. Word must have got around Liege about the band.........

    If you are at the Edinburgh Fringe this August this is the musical time machine you require.

    +1 It ranks as one of the worst ever presentations... The band were like something out of Belgium's answer to Phoenix Nights and Stevie Wonder music ?? bizarre and in a Shytey city of Liege it just got bad to really awful...yet it seems to feature on the tour regularly.

    But it wasn't an entertaining cringeworthy. When they had it in the Netherlands they had the bloke who asked all the stupid questions and last year they had the chariots and other nonsense. This year was just cringeworthy due to it's low rent tedium.
