Firstly, it’s Michael Woods stage win up the incredibly steep slopes of the Balcon de Bizkaia at the Vuelta a España. A thoroughly deserved and emotional victory for Woods, but little did we know just how emotional.
Sticking with the Vuelta, many of you had Simon Yates’ win there down as one of your moments of the year. Off the back of his spectacular capitulation at the Giro d’Italia, everyone was waiting for Yates to crack in the last week. Instead, with three days to go, he did what he does best, and went on the offensive. That the day that effectively sealed Yates’ first Grand Tour win, coming 2nd on the stage to Thibaut Pinot, but distancing all his key GC rivals
Speaking of Pinot, he’s next on our list, not for his Vuelta wins, but for his first monument, Il Lombardia. He does love Italy, doesn’t he? Not long before that, he’d been a domestique deluxe for the French team at the World Champs, but they still weren’t able to get the better of Alejandro Valverde, who, at 37, converted his multitude of silver and bronze medals into Gold, outsprinting Romain Bardet and Michael Woods to the line, and taking the coveted rainbow bands in the process. A very cool, calm and calculated win for the Spaniard, who has once again had an incredible season.
Now, in our previous best moments video, we had Tiejs Benoot’s first pro win in the form of Strade Bianche, but it appears that for many of you, the sheer effort put in by cyclocross star Wout Van Aert was the highlight of that day. Oh man, I think we can all sympathise with a bout of cramp at the end of a long day, even though it may not have been at the end of a WorldTour race.
