    The footage of Muhlberger taking himself out is amazing, he's going to watch that and think "what the **** was I doing?"

  • WvA starting his cyclocross season a bit early there.
    At least he tasted grass not tarmac.
    His own fault as he was first on the floor.

    Not a good time for Kwia to be trying to get back on.

    I've tried posting the twitter of Muhlberger's self take-down - turns out I have no idea how to do that but it's worth watching. It's the kind of thing he'll watch this evening and think "what the **** was I doing?".

    What is EBH doing?
  • ProssPross Posts: 32,870
    He obviously knew the train timetable

    He's clearly a Belgian train timetable enthusiast

    Looked like a remake of the infamous Grand National with riders trying to restart while the tape was half up
  • And that the entire peloton would get themselves DQF'd.

    Rain
  • Definitely should be a couple of DQFs for those two riders going off course up the climb.
    We have some rain!

    Rather enjoying Dan and Adam. Like having 2 mates commentating.

    Can imaging it's causing some Boomers to froth with rage however...
    We're in danger of confusing passion with incompetence

    Pace now quite fast on the holleweg - Lampaert driving it

    Hitters gathering at the front now.

    It's so calm though. I was doing a bit of DIY earlier when Carlton came back on and had to pop my head back into the room thinking something interesting had happened but there was nothing at all.

    Very early

    I assume this is more like the Belgian or Danish commentary Rick and No ta doctor bang on about, ex-riders understanding the race and knowing the riders being able to call tactics. Blythe isn't a fan of Sep.
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 62,466 Lives Here
    Lol does he say why?
  • ProssPross Posts: 32,870
    Just how he spends more time in a break trying to avoid doing a turn and that it doesn't help him in the long run.

    Sporza never ever get hysterical.
    Their commentary is as cool and calm as a Bjorn Borg backhand.

    Unfortunately, we will be getting the screaming banshee back for the best part of this Ronde.
