    Noted that at the time. I thought some of chasers were going to come to grief at that point but couldn't work out if they did - there were so many falls.

    Wow a bunnyhop. :?
    You only need two tools: WD40 and Duck Tape.
    If it doesn't move and should, use the WD40.
    If it shouldn't move and does, use the tape.

    Good reactions but.......this little bit of skill should be bread-and-butter stuff for the average pro. They make their living on the bike so it'd be a real shame if someone breaks a collarbone simply because they can't hop over an obstacle a couple of times during the average season. Looks cool though.

    Sure there should be something from Stybar in here somewhere....

    Stannard seems to get through the corner just fine without it though.

    The theory is Stybar got through it with less braking, more speed, and didn't need as much energy geting back up to pace.

    Which race was this?

    Cheers, exactly the one I was looking for.

    And yes, Stannard gets round, but Stybar was able to power through the corner and Stannard had to chase.

    Wellens is class. Not afraid to take the race by the scruff of the neck and attacks with 100% commitment. Only 23.

    They have made it a bit easier, by adding some more cobblestones! :D

  • This has got to two pages with nobody linking the Friere bunny hop attack?!

    That Sagan one is but a pale imitation

  • A little mentioned (but critical) one is Cancellara's in the Camargue 09.

    Made sure he moved from midfield up towards the front and thus keeping his yellow jersey

    (Can't find a link though)

    I had a quick look for a gif file of it last night but couldn't find one and gave up.

    Poor effort.
