I have never seen the NBC coverage. Kirby does the cycling too and he is a little better at that because he is commentating live and cannot lower his voice and let his mind wander as he does on the Dakar. Its style of commentating that I have an issue with rather than his ability from a knowledge point of view.Thanks for the mention of the Africa Eco Rally. I am checking the torrents now. As to the commentator, I still prefer Carlton Kirby over Leigh Diffey who is the commentator on the Dakar coverage on NBC Sports. Have you been able to view any NBC Sports coverage of the Dakar this year?
I do find that EuroSport does a much better job of presenting the Dakar than NBC Sports does. Also, for me, I find that Carlton has a greater depth of knowledge on the race.
I see that the Africa Eco is carried on Motors TV and in the past they have done a good job of covering the Sebring 12 Hours. I will see how they cover the AER.
