Tuesday Shorts 9/30

Worlds


Sir (bearded) Brad, uncorks armor piercing grenade in the ITT. Panzerwagen is defeated after 3 years reign. Would've liked to see more Sir Brad at bigger races in 2014. But what do I know.


Michal K-w-i-a-good luck pronouncing-t-k-o-v-s-k-i  slips away on the descent and holds off the chasers. Gerrans said he wanted to cry while crossing the line for second. A shrewd tactician (meaning he never sees the wind...EVER...okay except in the last 50 meters) probably needed one more person to take a pull so he could ride in their wheel to challenge for the win. Michal (I won't key his last name again) finally gets THE big win after consistently appearing in the top 5 all season. More importantly he secured 3 KOMs in his bid to become world champ. Kudos to the young Pole!

Marianne Vos did not win. Marianne Vos did not win. No typo. Just kinda shocked so I keyed it twice. Her trade team teammate Pauline Ferrand-Prevot of France did win. The last kilometer is worth watching. I wonder what the breakaway group was thinking.
