Tour of Flanders (or Ronde van Vlaanderen, if you prefer) is the biggest bike race in the country where bike racing is biggest. Weather, tactics, crashes, breaks, attacks—all the action and more in this latest #HTRWW, made possible again by my very good friends at Eurosport Cycling.

How The Race Was Won – Milan-Sanremo 2018

19 Mar

Back again this classics season, thanks to the good people at Eurosport. A stiff headwind kept the pack together for one of the slowest Milan-Sanremo’s in ages. But the sprint-friendly conditions created opportunities for attackers as well, leading to perhaps my favorite final few K in years of watching the event. Video not working? Click […]

It’s a rare treat to get footage for a full women’s event, and rarer still to see a race where one team is so dominant, but the competition stays active and fun to watch. Thanks to CyclingTips for helping to make this weekend’s HTRWW’s come together at the last second.

How The Race Was Won – 2017 Tour de France – Stages 16-21

24 Jul

So the last week may have been a teeny bit anti-climatic, but the 2017 Tour remains the closest and most competitive event in recent memory. By forcing the contenders out of their usual routine, it showed once again that the eventual winner might not get enough credit for his mastery of the aspects of bike […]

Good gravy, that was a fun week—lead changes, surprise attacks, Dan Martin being the beast of all beasts—one can only hope the final six stages deliver in as fine a fashion.

How The Race Was Won – 2017 Tour de France – Stages 1-9

10 Jul

A wild first nine days, and certainly no shortage of action—though I’d obviously prefer if we’d gotten a little more of it from the riders a little less from the race jury. Thanks again to Eurosport for the footage; you can find more on the 2017 Tour de France at their website: http://www.eurosport.com/cycling/ Like the […]

The 2017 Tour starts tomorrow—and what better way to prep than with a quick preview and recap of last year? A huge thanks as always to Eurosport for working with me on this, and if you crave a deeper dissection of last year’s race, check out the How The Week Was Won series I did […]

How The Race Was Won – Giro d’Italia 2017 – Stages 16-21

29 May

Phew—what a solid little last week to a pretty fantastic Grand Tour. Isolation, teamwork, poop, loss-limiting, just a touch of a panache, and a wonderfully tight GC battle all the way down to the last rider off on the last day’s TT. Enjoy it, folks—the good ones don’t come around that often. HTRWW videos for […]
