How The Race Was Won – UCI World Championships Men’s Road Race 2018

Oct 1 2018

I might have jinxed it after lauding a long-delayed champion in the women’s race, but it was cool to see the big teams battle, and even the easiest winner had to dig deep for at least a moment or two to bring home the stripes today.

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.

    Brilliant as always – but the race has to be long to make it the ultimate challenge (as with the Monuments). You just don’t watch the first 100km or so. The women’s race should be much longer – no reason women can’t do 200km, except that the UCI apparently thinks it’s 1956.
    Electronic gears just don’t work. And disc brakes are a disadvantage in a race.
