You know what I liked the most about the stage 4 time trial? Verus TV coverage of the event and the camera they put in the team car behind David Millar on team Garmin-Chipotle.

Robbie Hunter reported from the car and viewers really got to see the machinations that go on between the car driver/coaches and the rider.

We got to hear an update that was broadcast right into Millar’s headset. So cool to be behind the scenes.

In a decade of watching the Tour de France, that was one of the few times I’ve been really pleased about the coverage on TV and one of the few times I’ve learned something new.

Great great great!
