Great bits of cycling commentary

Eric Bristow, the darts player has just died, which immediately brought to mind Sid Wadell's brilliant commentary: "When Alexander of Macedonia was 33, he cried salt tears because there were no more worlds to conquer. Bristow's only 27." A personal favourite.

It got me thinking as to what the really good bits of cycling commentary have been.

For old sods like me the obvious choice is Liggett and Roche on La Plagne in 1987: https://youtu.be/sQojh-wqL04?t=120

My second favourite is from Belgium, opting to use English briefly. Cancellara's attack in the 2010 Paris-Roubaix. "Balen we have a problem".: https://youtu.be/TEFqL0mbazw?t=48

What other nominations? (It would help if they were in English, but it's not deal breaker. Colombian and Norwegian commentary is know for it's exuberance)
