Video: Splish splosh at the World Championships
Shimano service car video shows just how bad conditions were as Rui Costa took the win
On Sunday, in atrocious conditions, Rui Costa of Portugal rode to victory in the men’s road race of the World Championships. The entire British squad, including Chris Froome, pulled out of the race.
So conditions must have been really bad then. The live footage of the race didn’t quite get across the scale of just how bad the weather was, which the riders endured for over 7-hours. This video, shot from the Shimano neutral support car, does however. There are crashes aplenty, multiple punctures and lots and lots of water. A tough day at the office for those riders who finished the race.
