World Championships

I woke up late enough to catch only the fun parts of the World Championships last weekend.

It’s pretty nice to see Cadel Evans, who has a bit of a reputation as an always-the-bridesmaid rider (not to mention a bit of a whiner), ride a strong, well-timed attack to victory. Seeing him alone in the final kilometer, out of the saddle and grinding his gear to the finish line without any flamboyant victory salutes – that’s a nice aesthetic of victory. It reminded me of Sergei Ivanov’s stage win on stage 14 of the Tour this year – the right attack that gets clear and then a hard, ride, hands in the drops, ass on the nose, pounding home solo. Now that’s PRO.
