I do not ride on the road, but the Tour is such an amazing event, that I watch it every year. This year’s race was outstanding, featuring another battle between these two guys, and I love that this is how they respect the Tour and each other.

And this is one of the best post-race interviews ever, in any sport. An emotional Mohoric lays bare what it feels like to have won this photo-finish stage 19 in the Tour de France. For context, he was contesting a single stage win late in the three-week Tour, when the overall yellow jersey win for the top contenders (those two guys above) appeared near certain a few days prior. And by Gino, he is referring to his friend and teammate Gino Mader, who died of injuries on a descent in the Tour de Suisse just two weeks before the start of this Tour de France.

:roll:

Me thinks you should watch the interview with Mohoric….

Or I’m totally not picking up the sarcasm you’re throwing down.
