Liege Bastogne Liege 2012 - How The Race Was Won

You can be forgiven for mistaking it for last weeks' Amstel Gold. Though the tactics and parcours are really quite different, you still had BMC controlling the race only have an overwhelmed, isolated Gilbert unable to convert in the final. Vincenzo Nibali makes a bold, brilliant attack, but numbers, solid tactics, and a great day out help Astana put their second rider on the top step in as many weeks.

Best video I've seen in a long time - very funny and very insightful! A difficult balance to achieve.

I've been enjoying the this idiosyncratic take on the Spring Classics by the cycling blog http://cyclocosm.com. As Cosmo, the blogger, says himself, he tries 'to write posts that challenge prevailing wisdom in the cycling world, and peel back layers of analysis beyond what you generally get from the mainstream news sites'. He also has a good in-depth knowledge of racing and tactics, coupled with an abilithy to comment on a race succinctly. And all  of this sprinkled with a liberal dose of humour and irony. Not fawning as many blogs can be about the professional peloton - hell, he even has the audacity to criticise the race tactics of Philippe Gilbert in this video. Good fun and informative too!
