    In the Tour de France , I can remember when the most combatant rider of the stage , was given his weight in cheese. What I don’t remember, is when this happened. can you help an old man out?

  • round wheels

    I have a number of comments to make regarding the commentary team, it is fair to say that great cyclists don’t necessary make good commentators, the babbling Stephan Roach and the repetition of Sean Kelly are proof of that. The very annoying David Harmon spoils the viewing by this continuous Ah which precedes the riders names as if picking something from a list, in fact everything seems to have Ahhh. Sean just follows like a sheep and often gets this out of context including missing the letter S of the end of most words. If only we had a choice of commentary how much better the programme would be, please call the riders by name and no ah, or plural indicating lots of siblings in the race

    I will be watching as much as possible, things may change if the sheduals are cut etc due to other progs taking priority because they have more expensive adverts ,similar to the penultimate stage of tour of switzerland being cut to half an hour and showen at 9.30pm after watching the rest of tour all the week i dont think this is showing commitment to the viewer

  • ted scrote

    Much prefer itv4, its more reliable to sky+, i quite enjoy Phil +Neds banter. Someone from CW should ring itv and suggest maybe covering the Etape and showing it on one of the rest days.

  • jimmy the Fish

    Won’t be watching myself, not until we see the commentary ‘Dream Team’ of John Bishop and Billy Connolly in place. of the current somnambulists. Both keen cyclists, guaranteed to liven things up. (Kelly can stay on as summariser if he wants)
