Coverage (report and video) from Cycle Tips journalist Dave Everett: The Definition of Epic Tackling a Rain Soaked Taiwan KOM Challenge
Pre-race Video by Dave Everett
I enjoy Dave’s humour... comment to Nicole Cooke (World/Olympic Road Champ) and Tiffany Cromwell (5th Road Worlds this year)... "both of you got not bad results"! Love Nicole’s response at the end talking about compact crank.
Live Video during the race by Dave EverettThe coverage Dave shows while racing is cool, to see how wet and cold, and steep it was. How Tiffany talks about the crash is admirable. Seeing Jo riding was great! I'm bug-eyed in the video, learning not to do next time!

Peloton Pillow Talk video with Jo with Dave Everett
- 2 min in, shows the wicked Taiwan scenery on a ride the first day we were there… and my climbing style which I have never seen on video. It feels smoother than it looks.
- 3:40 Pre-race, Jo mentions my raw food and being a dark horse... so very cool coming from a competitor friend!Jo and Tiff are directly behind the fallen rider. The men's winner Ebsen is right in front of the crash. Front of peloton is usually considered safest!
