I was out of town, so we managed to secure a guest narrator. Took a while to get the finished product out as he insisted on final cut.

How The Race Was Won – Tour de France 2014 – Stages 11-15

21 Jul

Sure, Nibali has a more than comfortable lead, but two uphill finishes last week didn’t do much to sort out the rest of the standings. All that and some fantastically aggressive racing and a couple sprints.

Also, I’m seriously not going to be around next weekend, so you’ll have to wait for the final installment.

How The Race Was Won – Tour de France 2014 – Stages 6-10

15 Jul

A transitional week of crosswinds, short climbs, and moderate mountains. The GC race continues to not be shaped by traditional forces, and a standout contender solidifies his lead.

How The Race Was Won – Tour de France 2014 – Stages 1-4

15 Jul

As I mentioned after Stage 5, we’re a little out of order here. Relieve the opening few days among massive crowds in England that were…maybe not so used to seeing a bike race.

How The Race Was Won – Tour de France 2014 – Stage 5

10 Jul

I really couldn’t sum this one up in a minute-long, 180-world sound clip. Nibali gets to show his handling skills are for more than descending, Froome struggles from the beginning, and a whole lot of people attempt to limit their losses.
