Stage1 - an unorthodox late-stage pit-stop doesn't stop him

Stage 3 - Watt bombs




BTW, these videos are just great in every way. I love it when Lanterne Rouge does short summaries with video footage, Much better than the long blah blah blah with Benji or Chris Horner's offerings either.

Thanks for getting this on my radar - lot of talent here for a 2.Pro? Why is Tobias Johannessen the "enemy" of LR I didn't follow that when I saw it mentioned in other videos?

Ineos and Quickstep really strong here! I agree that the Vuelta should be really good - unless Remco is thinking of worlds?

I just realized that my thread title could be perceived as a spoiler. But there are multiple meanings of "putting on a show". Particularly when Chris Horner says it.

Not by anyone sane. Which doesn't limit it as much as one might hope.

I watched the stage 3 climb. Had no idea at the time just how ridiculous his performance was. The next generation of cyclists is really exciting.

Norway is on our "to watch" list after I get back from a trip next week. Good to hear there's some racing to go with the scenery.

I have free will and am responsible for my own actions.

If I were to complain about your egregious actions here, I'd be crazier than Remco having a wee with 10k to go and would deserve some solid dope slapping from the usual suspects here, just like he did from the guys that were pulling for him all day.

Ah, what the heck. That little red button is the "report post" thing, isn't it?

jeepers! You wouldn't dare!

Anyway, I'm glad you guys are all enjoying the news from Norge. Refreshing, though a little bit fishy. Definitely a different flavor from those Italian spices we've been gorging on.

So what if someone is "spoiled?" That's the problem these days... too many people feel entitled.
I've always maintained that if you don't want to know, don't be on a forum that discusses it until after you find out in the way you wish.
