They showed a rider down during the race and I thought he looked really bad laying there so awkwardly. I went online to see what happened and read this. So tragic. My heart goes out to the family.

Oh man, I had no idea about Goolaerts. I watched the race last night on NBC and he wasn't even mentioned. He left too young.

(It's well past the embargo time, but just in case somebody hasn't yet watched and is saving the video for later, I suppose I should say that the following has spoilers)

Yeah, really sorry about Goolaerts. It overshadows what was otherwise a spectacular race and a powerful conquest by Sagan. Not only did he ride away from the peloton, but when he reached the breakaway he set such a torrid pace that he dropped all but Dillier.

He could be the Best,

I remember with a mile or two left they said Sagan and Dillier were going 37mph. After six hours of racing on cobblestones. Those guys are freaks of nature.

What I noticed was that after he crossed the finish line, held his bike in the air, hugged someone from his team (coach?) he didn't even look like he was tired or winded. You'd think that after powering through that sprint he'd need a moment for his HR to subside, but no....

Who said 37mph? They use kilometers in Europe, don't they. Verification?
