It’s hard to pick a favourite moment in this terrific video. There are just so many highlights. Here’s a selection:

  • Sports director Tom Steels telling Kasper Asgreen to back himself in the sprint against Mathieu van der Poel.
  • The sheer jubilation on the team bus when Van der Poel’s legs give out in that sprint.
  • Van der Poel’s sportsmanship after being defeated.
  • The bromance between Asgreen and Julian Alaphilippe, and Alaphilippe being an absolute sweetheart.

This short film provides terrific insight into what it takes to win one of the biggest races on the calendar, and what it means to those who manage to. Well worth a watch.
