Yes, it’s really disappointing that RTBFsat has gone. It was a quirky but interesting channel and the cycling coverage of some of the classics and the Benelux tour was a big plus. I think they were one of the few broadcasters that consistently waited for podium ceremonies, even though they often seemed to be taking pictures from another network (usually France TV or Sporza) in recent years.

At a time when lots of the smaller races seem to be watchable only online, rather than on #ftasat, it’s a great shame to lose one of our sources of cycling coverage.
