Another new course this spring, though certainly nothing on par with Flanders’ change-up. Despite the re-worked parcours, this one unfolded sleepily, feeling at points like a Tour de France sprint stage. But comic relief at the back, some lively riding as the break wore down and an attack from a very surprising source set the stage for a fantastic finale.

Fancy that, naming something awesome (a bike race) after your product. To think that there are still a) unbranded products and b) products advertised with banner ads—boggles the mind, does it not?

How’d you get Jeff Bridges to voice the boss? Must have cost a lot of beer.
Glad to see you back in rhythm Cosmo
Thank you Velonews for bringing back HTRWW 😀
I was surprised to see Freire launch that attack, but hey Katousha needed to do something from the distance, they simply had too many good riders to go out without a show.
Thanks Cosmo – another gem. No one covers this stuff half as well as you.
Dude, the fact that you know banner ads exists proves that they still make an impression on some level.
Freire-lookback counter was amazing.
Great work Cosmo! These videos are cycling gems and I’m glad they’re back. Thank you.
Glad you’re doing these videos again! Hope you’re getting some sleep too.
Glad to see you’re back to posting HTRWW. Missed it!! Velonews version was lame!
awesome as usual…the original and best htrww…friere looking over his shoulder was brilliant…keep up the great work cosmo!
I’ve hesitated to comment, but now you are truly back to your best.it didn’t take long but the cream tastes so good.no more veloblues.
No exciting moves in the race this time, but still an entertaining video.
A small technical issue, though. I can hear static behind your voice which stops quite abruptly when there is a pause in narration. It is a bit distracting.
top stuff cosmo, good to see the comeback go through to the ardennes classics 🙂
Great video! Bought the Jens! mug so I can drink coffee to stay awake to read all your posts and laugh at your videos.
The “how do you know he is a sprinter?” comment was so funny I laughed out loud. Good job.
1:17 to 1:40 is ultimate lol
how did Lotto get away with it?
Great stuff! Keep it coming! You’re up there with Toto in my book, maybe better?
Great Stuff; Keep em comming. What about a “Cosmo talks tactics” series. Could discuss a variety of issues…headbutting. crashing. descending…lots of fun ideas
