Bobke is ripped!

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

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.

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

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!!
