    Nicely updated TV schedule, certainly some confusion with the rights this year!

    I’m sorry but Phil and Paul are well past it, David Mackenzine still thinks Ryder Hesjedal is “the second Canadian to win the Giro after Andy Hampsten” (ouch) and Anthony Tan isn’t much chop. As for Tomalaris – even after 12 or so Tours he remains an insight-free zone.

    SBS – full marks for your coverage of the Tour. In many ways it has been the chief reason the sport has grown so rapidly in the past 10 or so years. You need to fix the commentary team though.

      Couldn’t agree more RooBay. I love that we now receive complete coverage but can’t help feel that SBS wont invest in some better more knowledgeable commentators than Tan or Tomalaris. They really are a disgrace. Could you imagine SBS letting them commentate on Soccer, not a chance! Please SBS start taking this part of the sport seriously.

        Anthony Tan is a keen cycling mind who articulates himself well enough for TV. I’m going to have to strongly disagree with you on Tan.

        I’d like to see less of the desk and the endless speculation and just be able to watch the race..and if I hear Moviestar one more time I’ll have to buy earplugs when Henk is on ..(love Matt and Robbie though)..

    I don’t mind Phil and Paul but Mathew Keenan has an ideal voice for newspapers or magazines! Can’t stand his commentry and turn the sound of until Phil and Paul come on. Keenan could turn Cadel Evans off the sport with his annoying voice!

    Otherwise top marks to SBS – the Tour is the best 3 weeks of TV each year.
