APART from taking an eternity to exclude Jason Doyle for touching the tapes when it was obvious from the first replay that he had done so.

And yet it took a few viewings and quite a bit of discussion from the pundits before they saw it. I think he was right to take his time and make sure he was excluding the correct man as it was a close call. Just my opinion

CANNOT speak for the pundits but was sitting in the stadium and it was obvious ... it wasn't close at all. Just my opinion:neutral::neutral:

The best freebies are always in prime position overlooking the tapes :D

WAS actually the other side of the stadium but a great view.

Maybe I'm misinterpreting this, but I'm not sure bring sat in the stadium gives you the best view to analyse who touched the tapes first.

Yes, the exclusion was correct, but it took a few views to notice that the other rider (Laguta, I think) also touched the tapes.

My guess on the hold up was about deciding whether or not to exclude them both. Seemed pretty clear cut to me, though.

BECAUSE it was instantly replayed on the huge screens at the stadium

Ref was indecisive from start to finish imo.....he also came across as a homer!

There was movement in all the first 4 heats and he failed to bring the riders back on 3 of those instances!

Having said that...Doyle was poor !
