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 […]

How The Race Was Won – Giro d’Italia 2017 – Stages 10-15

22 May

Tom Dumoulin proves his mettle as a reasonable GC contender, Sunweb rises to the team challenge, one normal sprint, one crazy sprint, and loads of anticipation for this Giro’s final week.

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. […]

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 […]

How The Week Was Won – 2016 Tour de France, Stages 10-16

19 Jul

Never have I felt more like Walter Sobchak. The Tour de France video for Week 3 (also check out the first week, second week and preview) was a lot of work. So much to unpack and re-assemble, especially a shambolic Stage 12 and a teeny-tiny bit of controversy over a sprint or two. As always, […]

How The Week Was Won – 2016 Tour de France, Stages 6-9

11 Jul

Is it Stages 6 through 9, or 5 through 9, or ♫ workin’ 9-to-5, just tryin’ to make a livin’… ♫ Week 2’s Tour de France video (also check out the first week and preview) covers the fairly traditional ground of the GC even but notes that a lot of work is being done for […]

How The Week Was Won – 2016 Tour de France, Stages 1-5

7 Jul

The first of our our new “How The Week Was Won” videos shows that despite some opportunity for mass disruption, the 2016 Tour has gotten off to a slow start—at least from the prospective of the overall classification. The result has been more than a few bonkers sprints, where experience and solid teamwork have mostly […]
