If you missed yesterday’s world champs road race for men, then you missed a cracking race! The racing was brilliant but Mother Nature decided to intervene to see who was really deserving of the rainbow jersey!

For those of us that did get to watch the race on TV, we all got to see it from the perspective of the moto-cams that ride in front or next to the riders. It showed us the racing as we have become accustomed to seeing it. But thanks to the team at Shimano, they have released a video that gives us a different view of the racing – from the perspective of the team cars following the racing.

Here you get to see how Mother Nature determined who was strong enough to make it to the finish.

My hat off to all the riders that took part – it was a tough race!


Well, it’s been a few days since the Tour came to an end and I’m slowly starting to get withdrawal symptoms. So I thought to make up for it by sharing the following clips with you.

Crashes, although not the nicest thing for anyone to endure, always do look spectacular. And pros really know how to make it look good (if you know what I mean). I suppose in many ways, we’re just thankful it wasn’t us.

Check out the crash at 01:10 – very spectacular 🙂
