    A good one. Better than last year's effort.


    Not the best season ever though...

    Agree, not as slick production as a couple of years ago, but plenty of racing. Still the best around I guess

    They're quite mercenary with what they give attention to and what they don't.

    Paris Nice is basically a footnote since they deemed it too boring.
  • Stijn is monstrously large. Half a head taller than Paolini even though Paolini is standing on the podium at 3.50.

    Can anyone provide instructions on how to find the video? The link goes to another video now.
  • Use the link FJS posted.

    We're in danger of confusing passion with incompetence

    Lots of Cav in it too I thought

    True, Tommeke with a flavour of OPQS...

    Sweary Cav alwys good value and there's a couple of Sagan wins that I hadn't seen. Even if you can't follow all of the commentary, you can tell that its filmed and produced by people who love the sport. I may watch it again later if I survived Christmas dinner.
  • Great summary! Quite a year 2013. It's almost more poignant to hear the losers' words since there are many more of them than winners.

    No idea why no veldrijden coverage since the pro season begins and ends on mud...

    Not road is it?

    It's like comparing rugby 7s with actual rugby union.

    Watched this again tonight and had a few thoughts I'm gonna share.

    1) Cancellara was ridiculously good. Forgot how good he was. That Roubaix win was really quite something given the position he was in with 30km to go and again at 24km to go (though he did get his fair share of good luck with the QS boys but still).

    2) Great little bit in that race where they showed the conversation between Sep and Fabian. Sep shouting "I'll take over after the next set of cobbles" to which Fabian shakes his head, but still drives on.

    3)Also forgot quite how good Sagan was.... Might have to revise my predictions. Can't see Boonen winning much now.
  • Thanks for sharing rick. After a Xmas wiped out by illness that has certainly raised my spirits.

    I'm not giving up on him yet as I think he might surprise us yet.
    The motivation for him is that fourth Flanders that he really wants.
    He is still hurting from those two wins that Stijn took from him.

    FJS but I'll take the glory.


    They're good usually and often a good prompt to go revisit one or two of the races that you'd forgotten about.

    2011 was very good IIRC.
  • 10min recap from this great photographer. Quite interesting as it shows the moment in live then the photo. This particularly photographer edits heavily but very well and it is clear after seeing this film.
