What is the name of this commentator? I love his ability to pronounce names. He does it with such ease and panache. The highlights aren't as good as the NBC ones, but his voice is the thing that brings me day after day to view this coverage.

My (very minor) gripe is his expression '30 seconds of a gap' rather than 'a 30 second gap'. Yes, I know - too picky

Was watching the French commentary and as Politt is heard saying "Fucking hell" twice, there was absolutely no "Apologies for the language there" - they just let it be, it was beautiful.

@Frodo I think there's always been a puritannical edge towards things in English speaking countries - if you remember the Helen Lovejoy catchphrase in The Simpsons "won't someone please think of the children," that those on TV are role models and they should lead by example. It's a tedious sort of logic that is divorced from all logic when kids pick up bad language from everywhere including their parents.

I always wondered why in English TV there are so many beeps and cuts. In German TV, they would not even think about cutting that part out. You would hear much worse language.

@X88X Thats true - Its just if you never lifted such bikes its completely dumb haha. I can barely lift my heavy shitty commuter bike I think.

Yea good form, but :P - These carbon frames are like 7 kilos. I can lift a fully kitted carbon MTB frame just as easy, its nothing like the heavy 15 kilo commuter bikes people are used to...its like lifting a stuffed bag with clothes, and im not strong at all.

This is my first time watching the tour, does this mean he's out of the race entirely? Or he can come back once recovered?

Mark just tied Eddie's record. But comparing Mark to Eddie is like comparing Phyllis Diller to Bridget Bardot. (Ok, I just thought of that)

Did you catch the start this morning? A Skoda Enjaq was used by the Commissaires vehicle. It may have been used on other days but I hadn't seen it. Is this the TDF heading to Net Zero? A least the riders didn't have to suck in the exhaust. You can see two Skoda crossing the line behind Politt.

Vor year

I don't know much about Skoda's car models. I assume the Enjaq is an electric car? On the German TV broadcast during one of the earlier stages of the TDF they talked about the cars they use. During flat stages they use electric cars but not at the mountain stages, because the batteries won't last.

misleading 'cavendish vs the breakaway'. İ think they did it on purpose - just to get more viewers. Not much ethical. Correct form for me: Pott vs the breakaway & peloton

Le Tour is now only about whether Cav can do it? Hate to say it but he'll overshadow the Yellow Jersey winner especially if it's down to the last day on the Champs-Élysées.
