A challenging, scenic course at Innsbruck provided a unique platform for dominance to one of the best National Teams in recent memory (men’s or women’s). Bonus points for seeing a rider who’s won everything but finally slip on the rainbow stripes.
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.

Van Vleuten broke her knee during that crash, which makes that attack later all the more amazing. Or insane. I won’t judge.
Nice ride from Rivera too, I didn’t know she was such a good climber.
Great review thanks!! The women’s race was fantastic – really exciting stuff. Thanks for covering it
