Rob hayles has all the commentating flair of a pair of canvas flip flops.

great to see it televised and to get a decent length show. The BBC almost got it all right for me.

Now if only they could get the Classics on Terrestrial tv ;)

Yeah, but at least it was two hours on a mainstream channel during normal hours!

The race was also far more interesting as the yellow jersey changed hands so many times. So, mustn't grummmmble.
 
I watched it (cr@ppy weather here yesterday!!) to see if I could see myself out spectating on Stage 6!!

Seriously though I thought the coverage was pretty good and as a previous post said it was good to see it on for 2 hours on one of the mainstream channels.

Just a quick comment though, some of that rolling road closure stuff looked a bit iffy especially through the towns and cities what with parked cars and 2 wee bollards at every junction that didn't have a motorcycle outrider at it
