I've enjoyed Cosmo's How the Race Was Won videos for the past couple of years. At the end of this year's Roubaix video he has a great commentary on the state of cycling coverage. Pretty sad that it takes one dude working from his home office to provide easy to consume, engaging video on pro cycling.

Wait for it after the race coverage is over: http://cyclocosm.com/2015/04/how-the-race-was-won-paris-roubaix-2015/

The worse news is you're going to see far less of his work going forward. TWIB was appointment viewing for me along with his HTRWW. Wish someone would hire him and pay him a living wage to do this stuff, but understand he's got a life he needs to get to.

Yeah, you know, it's funny. I need to reach out to him.

When I came to this area (as a business school student at Tuck), he had just graduated from Dartmouth, and I actually corresponded with him briefly. I was going to ride Mt. Washington before I got to campus that year and wanted to do so wearing a Dartmouth cycling team jersey.

His site for the Dartmouth cycling club listed a ton of rides and descriptions with his usual highly informative and a little snarky style. He turned me on to a ton of the good spots around here, and he probably doesn't even know that. He can come across as a bit self-serving at times, but I really think he is an altruist at heart. I've certainly benefited directly from his efforts.
