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.

Might take a break for a bit after this. I’d desperately like to get back in shape. And if you know anyone at cycling production organization—preferably a rights-holder—do inform them of diversity of my skillset. Details are here.

Hay, just thanking you for all these TDF recaps. Really clever stuff. They were so much better than any of the dull so-called analysis that took much more air time on Australian TV. You’re brilliant!
Cosmo – thanks for a great tour-worth of HTRWW’s. Easily my favorite race coverage. Keep it up!
Another great post — although I’m shocked you resisted the temptation to reprise your Matt White / Bond supervillain schtick after Peraud slipped on the word “Greenedge.”
nice to see that you picked up on David Lopez looking dark, i thought it was serial-killer esque
also, with Porte getting karma for doing that illegal feeding inside the last 4km
given that VanGarderen cracked and lost about 2 mins to Peraud (guessing, but he was around 30 secs ahead and lost by 1 min at the finish) do you think that Froome’s 20sec penalty was too lenient? especially considering he’d have lost a few minutes over that period (to the likes of Quintana)
