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

Jul 21 2014

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.

    Seriously, I thought the stage was either a pilot for the upcoming reality show about Andrew Talansky or Garmin’s ad-buy at work. I thought it was even more comical that Alex Howes seemed to have no idea why he kept getting questions about Talansky and how hard it must have been for him during his post race interview.

    I think you may have misclassied Nibs’ look back at the peloton. Wasn’t he looking back for a crashed teammate?

      I don’t believe so. Fuglsang crashed several minutes earlier. I’m pretty sure Nibali had a look back then as well, but I don’t think it was quite as pronounced.

    Hang it there Cosmo! in addition to being a talented analyst of how races are won, no, seriously!, you have allot of talent with using video clips to illustrate your points, great sense of history, and just the right humor. In short, don’t go away, and for god’s sake why don’t VN nor CW pay you for syndication etc.

    I think the next tee-shirt we need is on the “wait for it….” theme. I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

    There was an even more blatant natural break on Stage 18 – check the Movistar rider at the front of the peloton at 82.4k to go. Just whips it out and lets it fly while making pace!
