My husband looks forward to the tour every year and has done for the last twenty years or more. So to his great disappointment he sat ready today to watch the start of the race only to find out that Phil and Paul were not commentating. To say that he is absolutely gutted would be a massive understatement, he said he will not be watching it anymore and it’s another end of an era.
Phil and Paul are and always will be the voices of the Tour de France. You can replace them with whoever you like but for the non cyclist they are the best. Having been a lifelong racing cyclist, mechanic and fan of cycling I understand that younger people may prefer fresher faces but there is no price for experience. Like many who have left comments, I too are totally gutted!
Alex, please delete the ‘a’ before fresher plus ‘a lifelong’ before fan, thanks.
Have done. I’ve left the ‘are’ instead of ‘am’ though (and also your correction request).
Paul and Phil are the voices and commentators of the TdF. It is the only cycling race I follow to the end. With out them it is not the same. Please bring them back
So NOT enjoying Le Tour this year….these two were “the package” with cycllng knowledge, good friends with the cyclists and so much information about the route, having lived and cycled through Europe. Oh come on ASO …really.
Phil and Paul the Rolls Royce of cycling commentators
I thought the same but I do think Ned and David have improved much this year, more relaxed and loads of good information.
PLEASE bring back Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen.I cannot abide the new team of EU loving,Brexit hating Boulting and Millar.The fact that I know about their political opinions is a disgrace-they are paid to inform us about bike racing.They are entertainers not opinion formers. Due to their patronising and condescending comments on Twitter about Brexit voters,I will no loinger be viewing ITV’s covergae.Thanks for ruining my sport.
Love the TdF – keep up the good work.
Afternoon question (not on twitter) – is it just possible that Team Sky intend Geraint Thomas to be the GC winner and that Chris Froome, who is tired after his other recent victories and has in the past been fully supported by Geraint, is taking the pressure off him AND posing as a distraction for all the other teams?
That’s a nice idea, but I’m pretty sure it won’t be Plan A because of Froome’s Grand Tour track record and Thomas’s Grand Tour track record. Froome also won the Tour and Vuelta in succession last year, so they probably think he’s capable of a Giro-Tour double.
That said, in practice it may very well work out that way. He certainly is a useful lightning rod. Kind of looks like one too.
