I pulled this from Youtube. I saw it first over at the Innerring. Damn is all I can say.
Apparently shot with a Weisscam, a German-made high speed digital camera capable of 4,000 frames per second, it captures surprising details in slow motion. You can see the tubular tires deform on the cobbles, specks of dirt flying off the wheels, chains bouncing, handlebars jumping in riders hands, muscles bouncing all over… This is exactly how I felt on Saturday last during our race.
It’s so detailed that some moments almost look as if they’d been shot in a studio, they’ve been staged, but then you soon come across a recognisable rider. Amazing, but it is all real.
I still cannot get over that it is over. I did it. I will definitely do it again next year. I may start with Flanders first and then move on to Roubaix.
