Womens Road Race
From the OPs link
Gary Lineker, who is presenting much of the Games, also apologised for the camera work, tweeting: “This is the Olympics. The coverage is from a pool of broadcasters from across the world. I’m afraid that’s how it is regardless of who hosts.”
Sorry that doesn’t cut it. Why were these issues not sorted in the test event. Plus if they know the coverage is outside their control they should have planned for this by having their presenters better equipped and informed to compensate.
BBC 4/10 could do better
Anyways lets hope for an exciting race!Posted 5 years ago
From guardian live blog thing:
A tweet from Fabian Cancellara …
The Swiss rider suffered a nasty crash in the closing stages of yesterday’s men’s race and finished the race sobbing uncontrollably. He’s taken to Twitter this morning to wish the ladies “a lot of crowd” and to warn British spectators, presumably those lining the road out the countryside, not to get in the way of riders.fabian wrote:

Didn’t look that bad as i watched the replay, compared to Tour bits, though I suppose the crowded bits on the tour tend to be climbs so going slower… Besides he binned it into stationary metal barriers…
People who saw more than me – was it that crowded?Posted 5 years ago
Well the beeb reckon they have sorted some of yesterdays problems,
It is apparently siling it down on the Mall (no vid for me until about 1:20ish).

I was commenting about getting punctures in the wet to a friend of mine who is a very experienced CNC toolmaker.
He asked if I know what lubricant they use to machine rubber…? No idea…
Well, it’s water and he reckons that it would massively increase the risk of punctures/split tyres…Posted 5 years ago
