A little later than I like to be on these sorts of things, but what can I say–with a new corporate sponsor on board, there’s bound to be a little meddling in editorial. Also, some of you might also have noticed that I was moving around a little bit during the event itself.

And with that, the spring is officially over. Trends that struck me across my many bleary-eyed hours of watching, re-watching, writing and editing were (aside from the obvious) the emergence of Europecar as race-makers and champions, and the sound and fury that BMC put into controlling large sections of Amstel and Liege to come away grasping and feathers in the finale.
Will HTRWW continue into the Grand Tours? I can only speculate. Physically, I’m really beginning to wonder whether I’m up to the task, and it certainly isn’t helping me out career-wise. Then again, if I had a different sort of career…

youre on fire cosmo!
Unbelievable! Were you that offended by Velonews?
Great stuff. Please keep them coming.
That was damn funny.
I say we start a paypal rally for Cosmo..hey, it worked for Lynne!
Great stuff as always..
Great stuff!! I’d put some $ into a Paypal rally, you can’t find this stuff anywhere else, BRAVO. And welcome to Megalized as your new corporate master.
Great race wrap up! Loved the bookends as well!
Ditto the support for paypal. I would pay for a recurring How The Race Was Megalized.
i would pay to watch these.
Wow, Cosmo. Very funny stuff. Keep up the great work.
Cosmo, you are a rare talent in an internet full of overpaid wannabes.
Please keep these coming, and as others have said (again and again), if you put these behind a small subscription model I think you’d be pleasantly surprised at how many people would part with some cash to ensure that you kept on pumping them out (just don’t go crazy on us!).
Shit, people can make a truckload of cash off some crappy little app for the iPhone, you should at least be able to get a few bucks rolling in for this awesomeness…
You need to kickstarter this bitch.
Take a leaf out of Mike Sinyard’s book and monetize this shit. Even if it’s just a “donate” button; I’d totally donate some of whatever you’re using for currency over there these days.
Not only better but vastly improved!. Have you ever noticed how two S logos sitting over each other look a lot like a swas……. Well they do on my Magalize TM ‘skillet’ . What kind of world spring classic domination have they been planning in Morgan Hill’s black room!
Hope your able keep up the great work!! I really enjoy the videos and your website..
OMG these are so good. Snarktastic.
I’d donate if it were available.
I am new to this site, but these are brilliant summaries! And fun too.
Re watching as prep for 2015 LBL – hilarious and insightful! If you read this, anticipating this year’s LBL Theme – almost snuck the Khazak remix by me…
