How The Race Was Won – Vuelta a España 2014 – Stages 17-21

16 Sep

A great run-in and sprint, a few late GC deciders, and one “why-did-we-even-bother-to-start” day. And maybe another flyby or two. [iPad/iPhone/m4v]

How The Race Was Won – Vuelta a España 2014 – Stages 10-16

9 Sep

The Heart of the GC racing action, with a few absurd surprises, battles for the minor placings, far too many motos, but no one able to upset Valverde…yet. [iPad/iPhone/m4v]

How The Race Was Won – Vuelta a España 2014 – Stages 6-9

1 Sep

Two mountain-top finishes, a sprint, and an escape. Plus crosswinds, some argy-bargy, more deflated thundersticks, a Magic 8-Ball and GC race that remains fantastically tight nearly halfway into the event. Buy a shirt if you prefer men’s style shirts.

28 Aug

Hot days in the early going in Spain—not a ton of GC action, not a ton of particularly complicated sprints. An on-form Degenkolb. An absent Sagan. An aircraft carrier. Too close for missiles. Switching to guns. [iPad/iPhone/m4v]

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. [iPad/iPhone/m4v]

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. Music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8jOWWsSb_g&t=3m45s [iPad/iPhone/m4v]

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. Music: https://soundcloud.com/dimmakrecords/the-chainsmokers-selfie-4 [iPad/iPhone/m4v]

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.
