    Lost Viking appreciation thread

    OK, this forum is dead right now, not surprisingly. No real interest in the TDU. So I thought I'd take the time to thank LV for his daily Grand Tour threads and let him know that his efforts have been much appreciated. Here's one of my favorite descent videos - 25 minutes of Romain Bardet descending in the 2015 Dauphine. Well, there's 6 km of climbing at the end.

    Although I have seen this clip multiple times - it never gets old. Thanks for posting this!
    To the original topic - LostViking - your posts are one of the highlights of this entire forum for me - I hope to see more of them. They get me so pumped to watch the stages!
    Take care.

    Thanks, never seen Bardet's master class. This north side of the Allos is one of the most difficult descents there are. It can be ridden at the end of the day on the "Barcelonette loop" (The cols Cayolle-Champs-Allos) but when I guide it we always start by going up where Bardet bombs down for safety reasons. Tired after a long day and some 3200 m climbed the smallest mistake could make you hit the wall or flip into the abyss.


    Props to LV.

    They do anything just to win a salami in ridiculous races. I take my gear out of the car and put my bike together. Tourists and locals are watching from sidewalk cafes. Non-racers. The emptiness of those lives shocks me. It was the illest of times, it was the dopest of times. And we looked damn good. Actually the autobus broke down somewhere on the Mortirolo.

    To add to the Bardet descent clip and appreciation of LV's GT threads here's a clip of Valverde's descent on the Tourmalet. (A shorter clip)

    LV doing the work. Huge props! Much appreciated my friend!
    To date, philosophers have merely interpreted the world in various ways. The point however is to change it.
