    Calling it now - cav won’t get top 10


    I hope he gets absolutely hammered but it has to be in a fair way with no talk of getting held up in a crash. Im sick to death of Hatch talking about nothing else

    Morkov looked to be waiting on cav to overtake him for that intermediate.

    I changed over to itv4 sick of hatch and co now.

    Dear lord, Cav got the intermediate and we shall hear of nothing else for the next 45 minutes. And another pronunciation of Morkov, nicely mispronouncing both his first and second name now, with the same announcer changing how they pronounce it within a minute.

    TG4 is better. ITV4 is mainly ad breaks.

    It's non-stop Cavandish talk.
    Carlton Kirby has asked the question "is it going to be his day today?" around 60 times at this stage.

    I like Cavandish but this would turn you off

    Beautiful to see all those French school kids out to support Cav.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,457 ✭✭✭lennymc


    i really really really really hope cav wins, not out of any desire to see him win, but to see the reactions on here. LOL

    Watched the highlights on TG4 the other night. For my shame my Irish is terrible but I could understand enough to get by and as bad as my Irish is even I could tell the two lads live for these 3 weeks every year and have a ball doing it.

    I know full well why they call it in Irish but I'd love to hear them call a stage in English sometime.

    I genuinely like Cav but the Eurosport lads are tough to listen to when in full cheerleader mode

    A reminder to everyone that before the stage Cav was 4/1 and Segan was 14/1……

    I watch it every year on TG4 the days when I get a few minutes to catch it live.
    Settled on couch for last 20km today.
    Should be no major surprise of Cav wins as Ewan out but Démare/Bouhanni or few others could do it.
    Not feeling the bitterness for Cav, he’s the greatest sprinter ever having a bonus swan song Tour and he didn’t injure Sam’s knee!

    DQS in a bad position, well within the middle, leaving it late to get up front

    He got a tiny mention but why does no one care if Griepel can turn back time or have a late career win

    Remember this is the young lad who took that wrong turn in the finale of a race a few weeks back before the Dauphine and had his redemption there.

    Team Lotto doing a great job just being annoying breaking up the chase

    Think he’ll blow but would love if he wins. DQS winding up hard in pursuit , will Cav be able to keep up with his train?


  • Registered Users Posts: 584 ✭✭✭Reality_Check1

    There used to be a median strip with lamp standards up the centre of the finishing straight - wonder if they took it out?
