Channel 6 shouldn't cover any more bike races
I don't really feel like writing today, but I have to mention that the coverage of the bike race today on Channel 6 was poor at best. The announcers were terrible. It was obvious that they had some knowlede, but not much and they were simply miserable as announcers. One of them used the same expression over 5 times. Both of them seemed really intent on building some story out of a race that had no major breakaways during their coverage. It was obvious that it was going to end up a sprint finish but yet they seemed so amazed that the winner wasn't one of the 5 at the lead of the peleton in the previous lap. Not that they called it a peleton more than one time. Was pretty sad and it really wasn't any better when they began their broadcast. It took me 30 minutes to even figure out what happened during the (untelevised) beginning 3/4's od the race. I'm still not really clear.. way to get me caught up people. It was pretty sad.
