More of a “last week” video, as much as I am trying not to do those sorts of things, but there was a lot to discuss, and not all the much went down on Stage 20 itself. Still, that’s where most of the footage comes from, and so that’s how it shall be named. Thanks again to Eurosport Cycling for making this happen, and don’t hesitate to click the “no, please help!” link in the upper right of the video player especially if you live in France or outside of Europe as you are likely to have issues with the video if you are in these places.

Thanks to Eurosport for Cosmo’s analyst of the Giro.
hope to hear you say ‘wait for it’ one more time soon.
I know I’m really late, but Dumoulin on Stage 19: was his mistake that he wasn’t cutthroat enough / he was too gentlemanly or that he wasn’t canny enough to have attacked Pinot? Honest question from a less-experienced viewer. Thank you for your work, Cosmo.
I don’t know if it was a “mistake”, so much as it’s anther approach he could have taken, that (with 20/20 hindsight) might have had a better result. But that’s purely speculative. Despite his 20s penalty for drafting after a late flat on Stage 6 at this year’s TdF, Dumoulin generally plays super-clean, even refusing to take a sticky bottle after his famous bathroom stop at last year’s Giro. I like that he rides the way he rides, and wouldn’t tell him he’s doing it wrong.
