I doubt anyone is looking forward to that many km in the rain but I'm still going with the guy who does hour long full gas intervals in rain and mud.

I’ve admired the US men’s junior romp and Dygart’s slam in the elite women’s TT. But kudos to the Dutch, they topped it all today.
I hope tomorrow is even better.

Trentin (of course) and MVDP grabbing it by horns. Several head to head of these two in Tour of Britain.

Rare to see VDP struggle and drop like that, haha. Trentin it is?

Hahaha. Pederson! How did Trentin muck that up. He made it into a low speed drag but for him to win there needed to be more speed in that sprint.

Trentin again plays the role of the “almost man”. Thought he was a lock for the rainbow jersey after MVP cracked.

And what a disappointment for Belgium. So much depth all for naught.

That wasn't a sprint. That was all the top NASCAR drivers skipping their last fuel stop and trying to finish on their last gallon. Trentin used his bridging up to the break (and towing van der Poel)

Well it isn’t like it wasn’t unwarranted.

Good post Ben.
I haven't watched the race yet, had another commitment (something more important than the Worlds? Say it ain't so! Please don't fire me from this forum!), rather just checked in every couple of hours. Will watch the replay tomorrow. Any particular moments I should make sure to watch twice?

World cycling championships held in the UK in October... What are the chances of it being very rainy and cold and pretty much miserable?
World track & field in Doha, Qatar, where half the marathon field ends up dnf due to heat exhaustion.

The only sporting event that makes sense to me this week is the Rugby world cup in Japan.

Nice analogy Ben, I bet the were all running on fumes at that point.

Couple of points:

1) VdP looked like a leadout man who just delivered his sprinter to the front and called it a day. I've never seen a more spectacular implosion.
2) Very happy that Moscon didn't podium... he's a punk
3) Surprised Trentin didn't win the sprint. Under normal conditions I would have been rooting for him but rather not see Moscon take any glory from a team mate winning. See #2
4) Zero surprise Dennis got canned.

Winning move started by an American (who didn’t finish). It stuck. The brave riders who took a chance and bridged up were rewarded. It’s all such a roll of the dice.
