How The Race Was Won™ – Milan-Sanremo 2019

Mar 24 2019

For those counting at home, this is officially ten years of me doing this nonsense. Happy that it was a good race—the sprint and Poggio run-ins each could have had their own episodes.

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.

    Happy anniversary! Congrats on ten years of excellent analysis & pithy snark. Nobody does it better…..makes me feel bad for the rest!

    That first episode……Scarponi on the Cipressa, Haussler’s career as a contender slipping through his fingers & and the only thing faster than Cav was the vocal delivery.

    IYO, was it Sky or Bora to be first over the Poggio?

    Asking for a friend.

    Great stuff as always, though you missed a chance to warn your viewers about the evils of 1x drivetrains using the kinda hilarious footage of Degenkolb trying to throw a tantrum on his bike.

    love the sponsor call-outs. the fact that you call back to your past videos (how the break was made) is just outstanding. hardly grasping at straws, bob.

    Couldn’t agree more about Sagan: that’s 3 victories he’s thrown away in Sanremo.
