An absurdly active race for a season-opener, with all the usual classics mayhem in spite if the UCI’s new rules. Omega Pharma’s Niki Terpstra was the most active and Belkin the most aggressive, but the opportunities abounded for all sorts of ambitious opportunists.

Newspapermen. I see what you did there.
Enjoyed your analysis very much. Do you ever cover women’s professional cycling? My husband and I follow both the mens and the women’s pro peloton and find it very hard to find journalists who are evolved enough to consider that people want to know how the women’s races went.
I’m not sure “journalist” or even “cover” are the most applicable terms for me, but I do try to!
I know there was a women’s race on Sat, but the only footage I could find was a minute or two of recap. I did managed to create a HTRWW for the Women’s World RR last year: https://https://cyclocosm.com/2013/09/how-the-race-was-won-uci-womens-world-road-race-2013/
Great win by Stannard but what was he doing looking back with 10m to go!
Thanks again for all your efforts with these videos.
Is this (How The Race Was Won – Omloop Het Nieuwsblad 2014)available as podcast?
Is older versions of HTRWW available on podcast (can only find HTRWW – Santos Tour Down Under 2014)?
Thanks for the coverage. your analysis is the best on the web. I especially enjoy the stills and highlighting (missing gloves, curb hops, etc.). I especially enjoy seeing the pack and break tactics that are not covered elsewhere.
nice work Cosmo, glad to see that the off-season and your winter did not put you off your game, bravo!
Thanks for the recap, great work yet again! Did you watch the Sporza file with the subtitles from cyclingtorrents? It made me laugh out loud every time they talked about “Lars Tree” or “Tom Beans.”
