- PSA: Tour de Yorkshire just started on ITV 4 & Eurosport CONTAINS SPOILERS!!!
Commentary awful, photography not any where like in the same league as TdF which is a shame as it isn’t showing Yorkshire off at its best
I just watched the highlights on Eurosport, and I thought it looked amazing. With the exception of the TdF, most UK races I’ve seen look pretty grim on camera. Dirty little towns, under drizzly grey clouds. They picked a pretty good route to show off Yorkshire today, I thought. Looked better than some of the big races.Posted 4 years agosimmySubscriber
David Millar said that Kittel ended up behind the rolling road closure.
I’m no expert in closing roads, but I’ve seen the Tour of Britain loads and it always seems faultless.
God knows what the members of the public thought seeing the Team Cars with 2 riders and a Motorcycle cameraman coming flying towards them. At one point, Kittel stretched his left arm out which I guess was telling the other rider to keep left.
They may have been as surprised as anyone.Posted 4 years agostanfreeMember
I thought David Millar was really good yesterday with a decent insight into the tactics and mindset of Tommy Voecklar . Admittedly the british traffic cops didn’t seem to know where to ride their motorbikes and the sight of the traffic coming the opposite way was fairly scary. As for the scenery Whitby , Robin Hoods bay and even Scarborough looked a lot nicer than some of the pishy wee industrial towns we have seen during the Spring Classics in France and Belgium.Posted 4 years agocinnamon_girlSubscriber
Another mention for David Millar’s commentary and particularly enjoyed his explaining how the sprinters minds/tactics work. Had to chuckle at Cav being called The General. 😀
Fingers crossed he’ll be commentating on the TdF, I’ve really been enjoying his insight.Posted 4 years agosimmySubscriber
I think some ” retraining ” may have happened after Friday’s incident with the rolling road block.
I was up near blackstone edge yesterday watching and a couple of teams had set up a feed there.
They were a bit late getting going again and the police waited behind them for a minute or two.Posted 4 years agoChrisEMember

You are wrong. Most of the coppers were North Yorks not West!
besides, it’s a bargain. Just cancel those football matches and they’ll have loads of spare cash…..
