    I stopped watching in disgust when Froome took the lead. Opps.

  • What happened to Barrie Shepeley?

    I don't really know what's up. I kind of miss Barrie. Don't miss his overuse of "literally" though. He seemed to be doing fewer races these past few seasons so I wasn't surprised he wasn't on the first few broadcasts. I assumed he would appear on the races closer to home. On his social media, he always commented on his crazy travel schedule to make it to the races and then return to his athletes and other projects at home.

    Hard to know though if it was also a budget decision and/or ITU wanting to mix it up a bit and have former/current racers.

    I am a Lisa Norden fan so I liked her commentary. A bit rough with English being her second language and not being a polished broadcaster but I really appreciated her insights. I believe she is on an ITU committee as an athlete representative so I think she was an easy choice for ITU to get her on the coverage since they would know her personally and she is an Olympic medalist. She's also trained with so many of the top athletes that she also has interesting stories to tell.

    I have no idea why Kirsten Sweetland was chosen for Hamburg. Not sure if she is an ITU athlete rep or not. She seems nice but didn't offer much. So many painful, awkward silences and Trevor basically had to serve up questions to her the entire time.

    I think in the past when it was both Trevor and Barrie and they had guest commentators it worked well but that was because they had an extra voice just adding commentary with the original two. Trying to go with just Trevor and an athlete is tough unless they luck out and get someone like Alastair Brownlee to do it. His work "in the booth" on the Superleague finals last season was amazing. One of the best sports commentators I've heard in a long, long time.

    It will be interesting to see if Barrie returns for the next two races in Canada.

    Instant Pots are so 2017. The new craze is to get a smart sous-vide. A co-worker was praising her new kitchen tool and sent me this video link and I thought she was joking.

    My biggest question right now regarding my team is if I'll regret choosing Valverde over Quintana on my rest day change when I replaced Uran.

    My team appears to be set after the swap, and my swap also has the red x. I’ve logged out and logged back in, and the team still includes the new addition. I think the x is just there because you can still drop him and add someone else. The swap isn’t permanent until tomorrow’s stage starts
    Thanks @Martin and @Robert Rankin.

    I did go back and confirm that the Valverde change was an equal swap for Uran (18 pts.) and within my allowed points per Martin's suggestion.

    I'll blame it on bad UX since you see the same thing Robert.
