Vuelta [no spoiler]

So still have peacock, and the 2021 Vuelta is on. Non NBC commentated, only AUS. Not like TDF that had the choice of both/either.

Sparky,
Curious, who are the Aussie commentators on Peacock ?

I'm just tuned in on Oly channel also. Real skeleton 2-man announcing crew with no man on the moto; no man at the finish line, no one doing wrap up at a studio somewhere.

Works for me.

"who are the Aussie commentators on Peacock"

Anthony McCrossan and Hannah Walker

She is good and knowledgeable. He is a tool IMO. He steps on her continually when he lets her speak to spout some ignorant BS over her good information.

His style is not leaving any time between info blank, so he just never stops the fill. It is terrible really.

I mute it usually he is that annoying. Elaine leaves the room if I have it on, and she likes cycling, especially Phil/Bob/ChrisVV et al.

I watched the stage 3 highlights on Peacock last night , Bobke and crew were at the microphones. The highlights are free to all and the full race is only for Peacock+ customers.

Ahh, I had not looked at the highlights opting for the full races and fast forwarding a lot. ;)

Simple solution...

They're actually English. The Oz commentators we have on the SBS coverage here in Australia are Matt Keenan (who I don't particularly like), Dave McKenzie (ex-pro who's quite good), and Robbie McEwen (another ex-pro who's pretty good).

I've also been using a VPN to watch the GCN (Eurosport) coverage, which has their usual crew of Rob Hatch, Carlton Kirby, Sean Kelly, et al.

Well, as usual, the Vuelta has been the most entertaining of the three big tours...

Anyone see that pterodactyl hitchhiker that came across the TT finish line on Enric Mas's shoulder?
