It was a concrete berm he had to bunnyhop over to ride the dirt (big pain if he messed up)! He rules and it was the race winning move as the course veered off to the left after the roundabout! Put him a few meters ahead of the others and that's all it took!!!OnTheRivet said:Already one of my favorite riders, that bunnyhop over a dirt median at speed just confirms it.
Cycling.tv does indeed have it on video.Einstruzende said:I hope Cycling.tv has video of this manouver.
Sweet. I'll watch it tonight when the kids go to bed.Stasera said:Cycling.tv does indeed have it on video.
I almost skipped today's stage so that I could have one day this week when I didn't have to work late to make up for staying home in the morning to watch cycling.tv, but I'm glad I didn't.
Just finished watching. It was cool, however I thought he was about to get wiped out by that car. He gapped those boys he was riding with real quick like. Good move.Argentius said:Well, maybe his DS told him, but I wouldn't put it past a wily classics rider like Freire to see the roundabout and have a sudden lightbulb above his head.
It didn't LOOK planned, exactly, so either he hid it really well or just invented it. Either way, it made for exciting watching! When I saw him flying up behind the race direction car I thought "WTF?"
