  1. Barack Hussein Obama

    2:14 🐐

  2. Paul Dixon

    Why no press too talk buttons on levers to save riding one handed when talking on radio?

  3. linglingjr

    I could watch hours of this.

  4. Jonathan Derise

    Mask don’t work

  5. Lewis W

    Thought he was gonna grab his jersey, stop peddling, and start talking into the mic during the sprint

  6. Rune

    This is terrifying 😳

  7. Danny Awang

    Yes! This is next level

  8. Ariel Valdivia

    Awesome material!!

  9. Jeremy JS

    Gold !

  10. ben dover

    I have been saying forever cycling needs more of this behind scenes action!!! Well done...Thanks

  11. Dan Louie Aquino

    This makes it more engaging to watch...

  12. Doug Fitch

    I'm an old hat, has-been pro. My thoughts on radios and on-camera bikes: They are perfect for expanding the fan base by bringing the fan into the race. Couldn't be better. On the downside, radios have destroyed much of what defined professional cycling. That is, the ability of every rider in the race to know what s/he, teammates, and all other teams should or are likely to do. This was once called "reading the race", a term that may have fallen into disuse (I don't know!), much like the skill of knowing exactly how far to move your friction downtube shifter to jump a specified number of cogs and doing so without needing to "trim your derailleur". Not sure if any of you young guys will even know these references! Cycling is still cycling but in some ways it has become boring. However, my experience watching it make absolutely no difference. What matters is engaging new and larger audiences. How about cameras mandated by promotors/tv coverage with a steady feed from all riders. That way the producers could jump between riders' points of view. Computer calculated time splits, speeds, stats, road gradients, wind speed and on and on might add to the engagement. Still, the sport has evolved to be less exciting due to exacting information available via rider/team radios. Seems the human elements of passion, personality, as well as riders' mental calculators required are less important now.

      I too am an old has been from the 80s...and I endorse your comments 100%

  13. Heri Setiawan

    Valtteri, it's James....

  14. nl_2

    This is more exciting than just watching the racing! Would love more of this!

  15. سوسو الجميلة

    احبكم وايد اموت عليكم يافربق الامارات فالكم التوفيق يااااارب 👏👍💃♥️👌😍😘💛💋❤️💋❤️🌹😩🙏

  16. Arthur Reyes

    This is how you bring fans into the sport!

    1. ovathere93

      Exactly!!

  17. Agni Das

    ... why are you using ancient tech? Dude... lol. You know there are microphones for situations like this - they go over your throat.. they don't cost more. Fucking trucker radios on a bike outdoors. This is a public embarassment

  18. Croatian Mountain Biking

    not going to comment the fact everyone has same car?!

    1. Scott C

      I'm sure they are provided by the UAE Tour organizers. None of these teams would want to pay to ship a car over there for a one week race.

  19. brysonszy

    Love how hyped the mechanic is at 2:12.

  20. Yeung Wing Hong

    Get in there, Lewis

  21. karma for karens

    I thought velon had power/hr/cadence metrics?

  22. Pucuk 16

    instant like..

  23. Paul Bradford

    Hectic!

  24. Kween Bee

    Trying to be like F1 lol

    1. Doug Fitch

      @beach asss You might enjoy my counter point I just typed above.

    2. beach asss

      not trying to because its really important to have a radio on a cycling race to support specially when the riders is dyjng of thirst or giving motivation for them besides of being a mechanic

  25. Manuelle Angelo Dela Cruz

    Calm us down mario! Play some music!!

  26. timtimzi

    Reminds me of F1 radio and onboards. MORE!

  27. Elizabeth Velez

    Wow Wow so lovely, just great, thanks a lot Ciao Ciao

  28. Totalavulsion

    All those people who have taken to riding and racing on Zwift through lockdown and now thinking about racing outdoors: Learn how to ride a bike in a bunch properly before you enter a race ffs

  29. Eric Swito Kasanmoerawi

    This is awesome!! Yesss more pls 👍

  30. Sam Werger

    this is great stuff. I wish every race had this and that it was incorporated into the live broadcast somehow

    1. Chris Bautista

      Go watch on Netflix “The Least Expected Day”. Biopic of the 2019 season of Team Moviestar. Similar scenes and drama.

  31. Daniel López

    Yessss this is UNIQUE

  32. 9 9

    Very very interesting. I need more of this pls

  33. Chris Brosz

    more of this plz!

  34. Kimaru Deori

    Its a hard job for the entire team..👍💪

  35. Danfuerth Gillis

    I can't imagine the times that the 1980's riders would of had using these newer lighter and aero bikes. There is no way these dudes can sustain these speeds without using these modern lighter and super aero bikes. What speeds could these guys get on my 15 kg $250 road bike? The same speed I get battling 35 km hr head winds. All time trials should be on their normal road bike, they are literally using Hour Record Time bikes now outside, it's a complete joke and looks embarrassing.

  36. Tom Mundy

    This is super exciting and we need a lot more of it!

  37. Fabrizio Mastronardi

    Should have used Garmin Virb Ultra 30 - better video - rectilinear edges and can get all the sensor and gps data

  38. Prince Matthew

    Kaliwaweng kayong lahat

  39. Elliot

    Madness

  40. peter schiller

    A tour without mountains is just ridiculous. Hundrets of km flat and at the end the best sprinter wins.

  41. DanielSong39

    I didn't like that the peloton waited for Adam Yates I know that pro cycling is fixed but I prefer it if I can maintain plausible deniability while watching. Moments like that make that impossible

  42. Shea Hurley

    Ahh but the super-tuck is gone so it's all perfectly safe now. Nothing to be anxious about here, just a bunch of tired, highly motivated and pissed off guys doing 60kph shoulder-to-shoulder dodging road-furniture between the budget-barrier death-traps. Totally stress free now that we're all saved the perils of the super-tuck.

  43. Nicholas Eagleson

    they love the twerk while pooping challenge 2021

  44. Mirai Kusakabe

    Reminds me of Tony Martin and Cancellara in their primes.

  45. Barrett Bowers

    I wish you would show one rider's footage through the entire sprint

  46. Dome stique

    Yeah,Ackie is a real acrobat! 🤙

  47. Joe Sayles

    Thanks for being open to all the questions Pascal! My question is what is your nickname (that teammates call you)?

  48. Alfredo Almeida

    Parabéns João Almeida Abraço de Aveiro Portugal 🇵🇹

  49. Buster Brown

    Wow. Those riding the drops, no brakes and ready to go. That takes guts.

  50. SDE

    That is some scary shit right there! Them boys are brave!

  51. Dante 92

    Caleb Ewan is an absolute beast!!!

  52. Robert ,

    Holy crap this looks scary

  53. Jan Tourkov

    The commentary is completely uninspired. Dear commentator, if you don't like cycling and the race doesn't interest you at all, just find something else to do. This is horrible for everybody and it's been going on for far too long.

    1. Channul

      The guy is perfectly fine, you're just used to screaming, overexcited idiots thinking they are the norm (I'm guessing you're an F1 fan maybe?). Take some enhancers before watching youtube, if you want excitement?

  54. dave kata

    He always has a happy face. But pascal why didn't any one iron you shirt?

  55. Andrew Rivera

    Gotta stop the stupid masks! How ridiculous!

  56. Ali Abdullah

    You have to be a real badass to ride in a peloton

  57. Gyurcan Hasan

    Astana proteam no.1

  58. william shafer

    0:05+ At least 3 riders jumped the starting flag, not practical to restart race like in Olympics, they should have been instantly DISQUALIFIED :(

    1. Slahudeen Hussain

      It's not like they gained an advantage, the race didn't offically start untill like 10km after they departed, man you must be a newbie to cycling

  59. Fukuda Hiroshi

    Does Pogacar use rim brake?

  60. shredneck

    nothing like a good shoulder bump during a sprint!

  61. John Joestar

    Is Disk the go to breaks now.

  62. Lotfi Mouhib

    wow!

  63. English Rain

    Awesome video! Wish it was 60 FPS though.

  64. Ali Abdullah

    Intense!!! I'd love to watch a race with both views simultaneously (of the peloton and in the peloton). It would be awesome. It's like that for MotoGP.

  65. Dean Productions

    Poor commentating again. Some of us want to know the winner at the line not 300 meters before. D grade commentating again.

  66. chair man

    TV companies take note. THIS is what we need to see when things start to get edgy.

  67. Dean Productions

    I am sick of the commentator announcing the winner before they get to the line. D grade.

  68. Estuans

    If this were soccer they'd be on the floor flopping around the entire race :)

  69. Harris Omar

    Well done UAE for organising this even in these difficult times!!! 🖤❤️💚🇦🇫🇦🇫

  70. Lionel Legoff

    1:26 Who are these two guys ? Bernal ?

    1. Slahudeen Hussain

      Yates and I think the other guy was amador

    2. Andreja Ssvab

      No.

  71. DD DDD

    Need more of this. Need to hear the breathing and the shouting. Not just the sound of helicopters and motorbikes.

  72. Jose Lopez

    Looks like I-95 rush hour

  73. Francia Csaba

    Rider in blue drops sth at 0:55 and in replay at 1:11, and that caused the crash! Just have a look on the wheels of the riders behind!

    1. Andreja Ssvab

      Not at all.

  74. The Aviator

    Intense... I could imagine myself just shouting random stuff just to troll. My honk sound would be... “kaw kaw! Kaw kaw!”

  75. LittleJulio

    If you saw the final sprint today then you know how badass that clip is to see from that angle!

  76. robert phillips

    GC Riders require a team of hit men around them 2 keep them safe. Like a lot of SPORTS pretty verbal at crucial moments. Gr8. Except 4 the boys that fell...

  77. Gerard de la Rosa

    caleb ewan!

  78. Nick P

    More action in this one minute of cycling than an entire NFL season

  79. jatojo

    Intense!

  80. bluemystic7501

    This is how my zone 2 group ride ends up after 40 miles.
