I’m getting a tad bit worried about Phil Liggett. In the last four days of Tour coverage I’ve heard him make more mistakes than in the last four years. I think that perhaps the riders aren’t the only ones affected by the Tour’s heavy-hitting stages. Anyone else noticing this?
In Belgium he’s mentioned that the riders were in France. He’s calling people by the wrong names. The capper was listening him (at the finish after the cobbles) saying (this is a paraphrase) ‘Contador is pulling Wiggins, which isn’t good for his teammate Alberto.’
Phil is unquestionably my favorite thing about professional cycling, so I’m hoping it’s just been a long season for him.
