Mandatory Viewing

I think I may have posted a link to this previously, but I just watched it again and remembered how interesting it was. It is a little long, but worth it:



Tactically, Domo Frites did exactly what they needed to do to win...even though they didn't have the strongest guy in the race. A must view by anyone who has any interest in the strategy of bike racing. Plus just cool in general.

"..when you have one guy against 4, you lose...100%...no way to win."

Fantastic video.

I think the one time I saw one guy beat 4 was when Vino attacked Levi and Gerolsteiner for points and time bonuses (and a top 5) during an intermediate sprint in the final stage of the tour a few years ago... He also went on to win the stage and I think we can all doubt his blood's purity now, by he did beat 4 guys.

This is a great video. Would love to see George win one before he retires.
