Originally I was ticked that it was aired on TV/Cable as much as it had been in years past (thank you NBC for the hour coverage today) but geez I was glued to my laptop much of yesterday and fell asleep watching the last XC rounds last night. Missed the S/J today but was able to watch the clips today.. actually I think the live feed is better than network as no commercials. Agree w/having the commentators I too thought they were great.
... of each rider's ride in each phase - just AMAZING!!!! Loved that the clips were there so quickly - I've had one hell of a time getting my two guys ridden this weekend THX to YOU - GRINS!!! Seriously, thank you for letting the entire North American eventing community share in the excitement of Rolex Kentucky 3DE - We all loved it!!!! Do it again next year, PLEASE!!!!

Thank You! Wonderful video even on my DSL line. Agreed commentators are/were excellent. Really enjoyed the rider drop in commentators who voiced their opinion on the course and were tactfully honest I. Their appraisal of other riders.

I was SO thankful for the incredible coverage, especially after watching the TV version--um, what did they show like 2.5 minutes total of XC? Basically a jump or two of the leaders and of course several stops and spills. And that was it. Oh, and no Wofford.
The USEF coverage was FAR superior! I loved all the different riders dropping in (except there was one girl I could barely hear) and it added a lot to watching the rides. Although I'm thinking Boyd *had* to be joking about--who was it, Peter Barry?--"making his fortune in women's underwear." Very colorful, insightful, FUN commentary plus of course it was great to be able to see each and every rider going through much of the course. Four gold stars, USEF! And on top of all that, it was free. Awesome!
