How The Race Was Won – Tour de France 2013, Stages 5-9

Jul 8 2013

The 2013 Tour de France GC race is in full swing, and the world is full of opinions! Me, I like to make sure we don’t forget to appreciate the flat stages—if, for no other reason than they tend to age better. Also, you should probably catch up on stages 1 through 4—it’ll make this video more comprehensible, on a variety of levels.

    I like the way you say ‘Peter Kennog’. You’re right. It’s not even worth trying to pronounce.

    Loved it!

    One small note: Belkin’s Bauke Mollema is not pronounced with the emphasis on the E; the emphasis is somewhat on the O, and just let the E and the A roll out.

    The analysis of flat stage racing is quite enjoyable and the banned word list is fantastic. I will need to institute it with my cycling buddies.

    I know it’s priggishness, but they’re not called Saxo Bank anymore. It’s either just Saxo or Saxo-Tinkoff (even though that’s still a crappy name).
    Incredible work you’re doing. Just love it. Please(!!) keep ’em coming.

    your implications regarding Sky’s Richie Porte are disgusting. Implying some sort of Dark Energy adding to the acceleration of the Cosmos. Aussies don’t cheat. Not their cricketers, not their Rugby and Aussie Rules players (re: Shane Warne, Essendon, Cronulla). Now that you have had the Dark Matter pulled from in front of your eyes, thank you for yet another awesome and insightful presentation. Carn
