I’ve never been a fan of people commentating on top level competitions who have never ridden near the level (or ridden at all) - the one exception Steven Wilde, because I think he does a very good job.
I watched one of the early trips tonight of JJ Atkinson and I thought Adam Cromarty was so out of line with his commentating.
He blatantly said she had no business being in the ring after her round in the qualifier, that she was surely going to have more rails, that the time was the least of her problems, etc etc. Now, he was probably 100% right. I’m sure the rider would tell you that too. But how tacky to do that on air.
Please can we have Jessica Kurten back.
