How The Race Was Won – Giro d’Italia 2017 – Stages 5-9

15 May

Some breakaways, a crazy sprint, the occasional crash, some colossal organizational errors, and the Giro’s first big GC shake up. Stages 5-9 were many things, but they certainly weren’t boring. Here’s a second HTRWW installment for the 2017 Giro, thanks to the good rightsholders at Eurosport.

Don’t forget to catch up on Giro Stages 1-4. Fixed the autoplay issue because I am also a web developer.

How The Race Was Won – Giro d’Italia 2017 – Stages 1-4

10 May

Four stages, four separate winners, four new leaders—the start of the 2017 Giro has more than delivered. Catch up on all the action—espcially the bits you might have missed the first time—from the non-sprint on Stage 1, to the echelons on Stage 3, to yesterday’s climb to the top of Mount Etna. All legit, thanks to the good people at Eurosport.

And I apologize in advance about the autoplay. As far as I can tell, that’s not something I can control on my end.

Episode 69: Liege – Bastogne – Liege 2017

It’s always a little sad to see the Spring Classics go, but LBL is a more than reasonable send-off, with longer hills, deeper forests, post-er post-industrial cities, and a complex, challenging finale.

Episode 68: La Fleche Wallonne / Amstel Gold 2017

Into the Ardennes we go—by way of Limburg, at least. A new finish at Amstel and a new(ish) route at FW attempt to stir the pot in terms of tactics, while Dane and I ponder the question: is change really necessary?
