    He's excelled himself this week!
    We're in danger of confusing passion with incompetence

    Some great videos.. Watch as he gets popular he'll probably get taken down for copyright infringement..

    Yeah I thought with the NBC thing he'd need to be careful, I love his videos.
  • His videos are great. I was hoping he'd do E3 and not GW (or do both!) since I found the latter a bit boring, but it was still entertaining content as usual. His week in bike content is very good too =)

    He's just great, it's just what is entirely lacking from Eurosport coverage (you know - analysis, fun, not just "making the calculasshiooon" and just plain guessing at riders names)

    I'd pay for what he does

    He's good!

    Top Vids. occasionally youtube gets narky so check his main webpage for some of the ones that he gets beat up for on you tube.

    very insightful.

    I've edited the link - thought I had linked to his page

    His 'The week in bike' is quite good too.

    Cheers for that, they are really good. I wish I had found them sooner

    Very good, however, he seems to have tweeted his UCI sponsorship joke to the wrong sufferfest!

    Anyone feel like re-tweeting it to @thesufferfest ?
  • Cosmo's RVV video is up for those interested (and those who haven't already noticed elsewhere).

  • That point about the wind in the sprint was excellent, the reason Cosmo is so well regarded.

    Just imagine a perfect world. A TV show hosted by Moore, Friebe and Bernie, with a race analysis section by Catalano and an alternative view from Inrng

    He is so right at 3:48. So poor.

    Agree. Bet they'll barricade that strip off next year. Just like Arrenberg.

    I do like these, but wish he would slow down a touch!

    Its like he doesn't want to get caught (possibly) pirating pay for view coverage...

    They are worth watching several times over. Liege HTRWW is up now.

    He says in one, that's his natural pace and he wants to keep the length below 5 minutes.

    Some good U2 groans in there.

    So three instances which showed Valverde 'working' even if it wasn't a full blown attach like several this year including Murcia at 100k+ and Roma Maxima.

    Note also 'Pure Racer' Dan Martine hides until very late on

    Yeah, he did ok given he has done nothing all season. Maybe if he was better positioned he would have won again. I haven't bigged him up even though I like him as a rider generally.

    Slightly OT, but do we reckon Dan Martin's aiming for a tilt at the Vuelta this year, following the Chris Horner method of hardly racing, and waiting til everyone else is cream cracked?

    He'll have to find consistent 3 week form first. he's a stage hunter, or one day specialist first. top 5 in the vuleta is very possible though.

    Interview with Cosmo

    Particularly like his thoughts on doping
