How The Race Was Won – Strade Bianche 2013

Mar 4 2013

(Fun FACT: did you know you there’s a page where you can scroll through all of the How The Race Was Won videos?)

There are times when it’s frustrating being on the other side of the world. A little trouble with the video (codecs, transcoding, slow capper upload speed) held up the Strade Bianche HTRWW by about 24 hours. Which is still pretty fast, all things considered.

I will shamefacedly concede that the delay did allow GCN to get a Strade Bianche “race report” video posted before I did. You should check out both videos, of course—with the advantage of actually being there they get a great look at the condition and feel of the gravel roads involved.

    Excellent recap, as always.
    Cannondale made that look pretty easy.

    More awesomeness from Cosmo. Loved the Death Star riff.

    Hallelujah, HWTRWW is back! It’s been too long, Cosmo!

    Awesome! I would definitely rather watch this than any GCN video!

    Nice job Cosmo, always enjoy these.

    Still think it is too early to label this thing a classic. The Tour of Langkawi has been going for longer. That said, it’s well on its way to providing some epic and fun to watch racing.

    I’ll just call it an awesome race. nuovo classico.

    Keep up the good work!

    HTRWW is significantly more interesting than the GCN video. By far. Your insight and tactical acumen illuminate what others miss. Somebody needs to start paying you for this work. Don’t know what model works: advertising, subscription or what, but you’ve got something of real value here. Rock on

    These are f-ing awsome. Glad to see two videos already this season.

    I always love watching these but surely with a surname like yours you can pronounce the Italian names better, ce and ci are ‘ch’ , No(ch)entini and Can(ch)ellara
