Watching the NBC pre show and Bobke is looking super fit. One of the announcers complimented him on dropping 30lbs since the Tour last year :eek:

Good for him....motivation for all of us who could drop some excess baggage.

Is the NBC Sports feed a subscription only service now? No longer free on cable packages?

The feed isn't separate from the programming on NBC Sports if that's what you're asking. If you have the channel you have the feed.

I am trying a few streaming services out this month that include NBCSN. Signed up for free 7 days of slingtv with DVR and HBO and will cancel this coming Friday night. Then going to try fubo. Not sure which one next.

Watching and recording right now.

Bobke fix his teeth aswell, the space is still there (more natural feel) but the chip is gone. Good for him.

Good for Bobke. Now the producers need to tell paul burmeister to stop flexing. He looks like an idiot.

Or carbon, for that modern look.

I had the pleasure of riding with him (and dinner, and driving him around a bit) as part of the UCI race in Winston-Salem, NC a few weeks ago. He's rather fit at the moment. Also pretty entertaining to talk with. Also Kristen Armstrong (and got to hold her gold medal from Rio) and Robbie Ventura. Cool experience.

Bob said the hardest part of his job is the grand tours - 16 hour days, always "on" for the camera, and no time to ride or exercise in general.

Noticed Bob lost a bit of weight. I guess it's my turn now!!! I am doing a juice fast over the long weekend. However I am still doing BBQ for the family. This may be a new tradition for me over the 4th. I feel great except a few minor headaches and I have to brush my teeth a lot. The sugar from the fruit I suspect.

Well, not to highjack a thread..When I had a Waterford, wasn't impressed by the ride until I lost about 10 pounds..what a great frame!. Now, this summer, been able to ride more and even tho doing 12 ounce curls of my favorite barley pop..have lost some weight...and YES, 10 pounds make a HUGE difference. Now my bike weighs only 10 pounds!!:eek:

Awesome! That would solve a lot of my issues.

Hopefully Phil is...otherwise he's COMPLETELY round the bend. Unbearable.

Yep. I'm a huge fan of P+P. There was a time they were among the best commentating duos in all of sports. But they should have been put out to pasture about a decade ago.

They're still the soundtrack of my cycling youth, don't get me wrong...but a graceful escalation to "emeritus" or "special commentator" status would be welcome.

From what i read P&P have been replaced in Australia and are not too happy about it.

Phil and Paul are fine compared to Carlton Kirby. His weird whispering tone and the repulsive way he says any non-english phrase or name is really grating.

Anyways back to Bobke, he has a cool youtube channel that rounds up news and sometimes covers races day by day. Kind of like GCN but not beholden to the bike industry. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHKOdvOjx4w_YAgOSDEqSxA

Carlton Kirby doesn't think Team Kelme is still in the peloton though.

Damnit. I sorta found that guy annoying, but, after you pointed it out, It's excruciating to watch him sit there and do that. It's going to be a long tour.

Edit. Betcha ten bucks he had the wardrobe girl pull the shirt back in the back just so with a few clips.
