How The Race Was Won – Tour de Romandie 2014

5 May

An important Tour tune-up stage in what’s been, for many would-be contenders, an usual spring. Features TTs, climbs, sprints (bunch and tactical) and yes—victory cheese. outro music: [iPad/iPhone/m4v]

How The Race Was Won – Liege-Bastogne-Liege 2014

28 Apr

You can make a donation for this week’s fresh beats: The action was back-loaded into this year’s event, but the sudden swings of fortune and what-if moments were all still there in abundance. In many ways, the riders were one, but they were not the same… [iPad/iPhone/m4v]

How The Race Was Won – Gent-Wevelgem 2014

What this classic lacks in high-profile obstacles, it makes up for in rich historical appeal. After all, The More You Know™. [iPad/iPhone/m4v if the embed doesn't work]

How The Race Was Won – Milan-Sanremo 2014

24 Mar

New climb, old climb, no climb—it’s a long-ass race and the weather was bad. Can you even really call it a bunch sprint if the “bunch” is less than 30 riders? [iPad/iPhone/m4v if the embed doesn't work]

How The Race Was Won – Omloop Het Nieuwsblad 2014

3 Mar

An absurdly active race for a season-opener, with all the usual classics mayhem in spite if the UCI’s new rules.

27 Jan

15 Oct

[iPad/iPhone/m4v if the embed doesn't work] “The Sprinters’ Classic” is played out. “The Un-Google-able Race” is the new jam.
