2009 Tour of Romandie Video Analysis

How The Race Was Won - 2009 Tour of Romandie Video Analysis from Cosmo Catalano on Vimeo.

Hello again, Podium Cafe. Sorry I was too busy to follow up on comments last week. Promise to pay more attention this time around. 

I'm curious to know what you think of using this all-stages-at-once format for shorter stage races. The alternative, which I'm planning to use for the Grand Tours, would be to recap quickly the events leading up to a big stage, and then cover the big stage as if it were a one day race. Afterwards, I'd have a short segment going over the implications for the rest of the event.

Initially that was my plan, but Romandie had some great finishes—I loved the Evans/Gilbert move, and the pushy last kilo at the end of Stage 5—that I wanted to look at in at least passing detail. The downside is that nothing gets a super deep analysis, and all the internal competitions (points, Mountains, aggressiveness, etc.) get left out entirely. 

Oh, and my apologies for mispronouncing "Kessiakoff". Repeatedly.

*And it was Kuschynski who was 2nd at Wevelgem. I need an intern to fact check before these go live.
