  • I’m not a cycling desperate, and I wasn’t a great fan of Robbie.
    In fact I stopped watching SBS Tour de France after he came onto the commentary team.
    Like many cycling enthusiasts, I enjoyed the original travelogue aspect of the TDF coverage, which faded a little with the modern team.
    The in-depth analysis was over the top, and to me there seemed to be some aggression in the commentary, with a fair bit of an ‘I know’ and ‘I was right’ trumpeting on display.
    I particularly disliked the interruptions to other commentators’ talking points when some obscure tactic or incident happened.
