    Surprised to see Wild as the leadout. Rivera is officially an all-rounder now. And good stuff from the Boels duo especially Armitstead — though would love to see Evie Stevens take a win for herself again soon. The commentary from 21-time Philly finisher Laura Van Gilder was the cherry on top! Anyone know if UCI will be producing their short and long highlights again?

      Agree on Wild. We reached out to ask her why that was the plan, but we haven’t gotten word yet. If we do, we’ll let you know! And yes – Rivera impressed. Love seeing her develop (well) beyond her sprint capacities. Boels-Dolmans was superb. They didn’t miss a beat – especially interesting hearing from Lizzie how many times they changed the plan while out on the road. In terms of highlights, we hope so, although the short highlights should have been out today. Maybe with the replays, they consider them redundant?

      Having someone like LVG announcing and explaining is critical. Women’s racing differs from men’s quite a bit and her explanation of ‘not wanting to make a mistake,’ the small team sizes, etc. was critical to understanding the tactics that were being used and I hoped other audience members were in as much suspense as I was. More of this type of announcing is critical.
