Boulting is the best, I think. He's got character and knows his weaknesses (or ex-weaknesses). Kirby spends half the time preempting complaints about mistakes or complaining about "road furniture" and the incompetence of race organizers.
Phil Liggett was actually nuts, so I'm glad he's gone. His story about men showing up to people's houses to bribe them to 'lie' about Armstong doping. Jesus.
