|2||CleanVideoHow The Week Was Won – 2016 Tour de France, Stages 10-16||Never have I felt more like Walter Sobchak. The Tour de France video for Week 3 (also check out the first week, second week and preview) was a lot of work. So much to unpack and re-assemble, especially a shambolic Stage 12 and a teeny-tiny bit of controve||7/19/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
|3||CleanVideoHow The Week Was Won – 2016 Tour de France, Stages 6-9||Is it Stages 6 through 9, or 5 through 9, or ♫ workin’ 9-to-5, just tryin’ to make a livin’… ♫ Week 2’s Tour de France video (also check out the first week and preview) covers the fairly traditional ground of the GC even but notes||7/11/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
|4||CleanVideoHow The Week Was Won – 2016 Tour de France, Stages 1-5||The first of our our new “How The Week Was Won” videos shows that despite some opportunity for mass disruption, the 2016 Tour has gotten off to a slow start—at least from the prospective of the overall classification. The result has been more||7/7/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
|5||CleanVideoHow The Week Was Won – 2016 Tour de France Video Preview||What’s that? Time for a video about the 2016 Tour? Sure, why not.

|6||CleanVideoHow The Race Was Won – Liege-Bastogne-Liege 2016||No better way to end the spring season than a thin layer of heavy, damp snow, right? The weather certainly played a role, but tactics, vind vests, gearing, and even (maybe) the occasional spectator did too. Enjoy the schadenfreude that comes from knowing||4/25/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
|7||CleanVideoHow The Race Was Won – Amstel Gold 2016||Into the hills of the Netherlands, on a race course the favorites still seem to be trying to figure out. Yes, the action is end-loaded, but it’s pretty interesting this time around PLUS I hid a rider mis-identification toward the end totally on purp||4/18/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
|8||CleanVideoHow The Race Was Won – Paris-Roubaix 2016||Yeesh, what a race. Early splits, strong teamwork, crashes, epic saves—but it would all come down to who was best on the cobbles…or would it? A study in cycling, persistence, luck, and general exhaustion. Thanks as always to the good people at Cycling||4/11/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
|9||CleanVideoHow The Race Was Won – Tour of Flanders 2016||Summing up Tour of Flanders in five minutes is always a challenge. Key points—aggressive racing early didn’t pay off, things calmed down a lot in the middle, Cancellara passing on the move did have some logic to it, and the critical moments were a l||4/4/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
|10||CleanVideoHow The Race Was Won – Milan-Sanremo 2016||So—probably just going to be a handful of these this year, but you should thank the good people at CyclingTips that there are any at all. Sanremo was the first race I ever did (back in 2009) and one of my favorites. But between the crashes and the lack||3/21/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
