I could watch with no commentary (and often do) just to see the countryside roll by! I think ITV are suffering a bit as they only have Boulting & Millar. Since no-one could do a 5-6 hour stint without breaks they are using a bloke back in London chatting to whoever they can find with a role in cycling to provide some relief.

Eurosport are using their two main commentators in relay (including, sadly, the execrable Carlton Kirby) with experts rotating in and out. This works better.

There will be longueurs but I would rather that than miss early action.
