How The Race Was Won – USA Pro Challenge 2013

28 Aug

If the event is looking a bit unsettled about its name, may I suggest “Tour of Colorado”? Sorry it’s a bit late, and afraid I won’t be doing HTRWW for the Vuelta due to some time zone issues and day job time constraints. That said, there’s more going on over the next months than 21 […]

How The Race Was Won – Clasica San Sebastian 2013

29 Jul

Does anyone call this the Climber’s Classic? Well, they shouldn’t. Sure, the length of the race and climbs take a toll, but they’re pretty tame as far as slope goes, and a clever all-rounder can get away if the favorites can’t seem to sort things out—and if the motos don’t provide too much support to […]

How The Race Was Won – Tour de France 2013, Stages 16-21

22 Jul

A complete HTRWW’d grand Tour, all released next-day in spite of a weird centennial schedule, non-standard Euro codecs, and all sorts of crazy fans—though judging by the last week rider-on-fan violence, I think it might be important for spectators to scale it back a touch. Need to catch up? Part 1, Part 2, Part 3. […]

How The Race Was Won – Tour de France 2013, Stages 10-15

15 Jul

Crosswinds! Crash drama! Sylvain Chavanel demonstrating additional facets of his seemingly limitless skillset! One week remaining, with each day’s profile revealing legitimate, game changing potential. Catch up here (Stages 1-4, Stages 5-9) and watch the fireworks tomorrow. [click for iPad/iPhone/download]

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

8 Jul

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 […]

How The Race Was Won -Tour de France 2013, Stages 1-4

3 Jul

I think I’m OK with starting the Tour with sans prologue. Still not changing my mind on bonus seconds. That said, it’s been an exciting enough start to the race—especially for Orica-GreenEdge. Not too bad for RadioShack, kinda meh for Omega-Pharma and terribly unlucky for one Edward King. Oh, hey—and if you just stumbled across […]

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

30 May

Finished a full Grand Tour—a certified pro, as Paul Kimmage once said. Great to see Nibali take a few stages to “stamp his authority on the race”; I remember when that phrase meant dumping another two minutes onto your GC rivals on the second mountain stage after merely smashing them on the first. The times—as […]

How The Race Was Won – Giro d'Italia 2013 – Stages 10-15

27 May

The penultimate week of the race! Yes, you were probably expecting this last weekend, but I had a blast riding out in California with Supporter Club Tyler Wren. Anyway—I have another one of these to churn out, so no lengthy preambling. Enjoy! [click for iPad/iPhone/download]

How The Race Was Won – Giro d'Italia 2013 – Stages 5-9

13 May

They certainly have end-loaded this year’s Giro. After nine days (don’t forget to check out stages 1 through 4), lots of probing GC moves, lots of rain, lots of heads-up racing—which is what I think you want out of the early going in a Grand Tour. I could perhaps stand to see a few more […]

How The Race Was Won – Giro d'Italia 2013 – Stages 1-4

13 May

I’ve had a pretty good run with HTRWW this spring, but last Tuesday, a few things went wrong. A perfect storm, if you will. The still-buggy result is this Lost Episode—scheduled to go live last Wednesday, offered now (along with stages 5 through 9) because it’s a rest day and you’ve got nothing to do […]
