    Always enjoyed Parish and Cox on the beeb, nice balance of humour,self deprecation and knowledge. The frisson of it being live also helped.
    I'm now forced to follow the highlights on itv with Huen and Ryder.
    Some in the general press regard them as the dream team.
    Am I missing something here ? It's become a painful viewing experience.
    Am I alone in this?

    They get the wrong rider or team constantly.
    They get over excited when it's just the camera angle making it look like a pass has been made.
    They talk a load of bollocks in between when they could be commentating on places 3,4,5,6,7.
    They don't seem to know a lot about bikes.
    One of them (don't even care which) sounds like he has a toffee stuck in his teeth.

    Add in that the director struggles with the concept of showing anything other than the leader
    or replays of the start (which we've already seen) and the coverage is next to useless.

    Could be worse, I could be paying for the long version.
