    CI was pretty good I thought.

    Obviously invested a bit in making their own programme rather than just showing the packaged ASO offering, and great they show it the evening of the event. Cycling obviously being taken more seriously by ITV4 !

    McCrossan has a hugely boring commentating style, but Boardman, Imlach & Boulting excellent

    And good to have advance notice of P-R and L-B-L - previously they've stuck these on at 9:30am two weeks after the event and with no warning so I missed them...
    ...like I missed P-N this morning !

    Agree, the CI prog was really well done. Boardman's an insightful pundit during the race commentary, and the discussion between him and Imlachwas spot in. And Imlach's unmatched when it comes to the bon mots - as Rick's mentioned on another thread, his sign off re Froome's agent needing to trademark the 'sheepish look over the shoulder' was an absolute zinger.

    The P-N highlights show was just Matt Keenan's commentary.
  • I was really pleased to see it on ITV4, and agree that Boardman is a great commentator. I also enjoyed the fact that they got some post race interviews, which are a rarity on Eurosport.

    However even though I was expecting it, the damn advert breaks were such a pain!!! Seemed like they were every 5 mins almost.

    on sky+ for later on tonight... wahey !

    If you could have the ITV punditry team with the Eurosport commentary team (Harmon and Kelly) I think it would be ideal.

    McCrossan is commentating again. Cant have everything, I suppose.

    ITV4 will have LBL highlights on Sunday night at 9pm.

    Ned B has tweeted that they won't have any coverage of the Giro, which is a shame.

    Harmon quits Eurosport:

    Well, at least until the Tour.
    (although, at the moment, he sounds like it could be more permanent.)

    Does anyone really watch the entire stage?
    Fckin' Quintana … that creep can roll, man.
  • cogidubnuscogidubnus Posts: 860
    If im in the flat I might have the whole stage on in the backround. I won't sit and watch a full 5-6 hours though

    Harmon has not gave a reason why he's quit and then back for the tour ? Please god dont give the job to Carlton "chugging away" kirby. the guy is a complete wahooo. give it to Dan Lloyd.

    Wonder will Harmon turn up as part of Sky's cycling coverage.

    Some of the Italian races have used Robbie Hatch; he's quite good and doesn't waffle too much!

    I do if it's on! Especially the Tour stages where they show from the beginning.

    Won't be Rob Hatch for the Giro.
    Dunkerque and Cali are 2 of the 3.....

    Looks like it's Kirby, then, he is the RCS's English man..............Which means Rai Sport 2 for me.

    It's really all about that first hour or so, rather than the missing mid section.

    Eurosport always provide their own commentary, rather than taking a feed provided by the host broadcaster, so that might rule out CK.

    Does the end of Harmon also mean the end of Sean? He very rarely works with anyone else.

    Kirby and Kelly for LBL tomorrow,should be an eye opener.

    I agree and will be tuning in if the broadband can cope with the strain.
