How The Race Was Won Cosmo Catalano

Cosmo Catalano seems to be back doing the HTRWW series a fan favorite, so though we needed to record them in the one thread

    Just one point here, but Cosmo suggests GVA had no choice but to attack Stannard because of EBH behind, but due to the lack of radios I doubt it was that black and white and GVA would have had sufficient info to worry about that.

    I think Stannard has said he/they knew the trio were relative close behind them - he also says that when he looks back at 1k to go he knows its just him and GVA for the win.  I think Cosmo is just saying that GVA was obliged to keep the pace high, whereas Stannard could ease off and force his rival to take to the front.

    Unusual variant on the bike throw here.  At 1:21, a woman in jeans flings a Sky Pinarello into a corn field.

    No, I don't know why either.

    Cosmo Countdown

    I've been thinking about this for a while, and thought it might be amusing to initiate a countdown as to when I'm going to finally cross paths with the inimitable Mr. Catalano.  :s

    Allow me to explain.

    I first began following Cosmo Catalano when I randomly came across one of his early HTRWW videos some years ago. At the time, I assumed he was living abroad somewhere in Europe and had close ties to the pro peloton. Then he seemed to go underground for awhile and wasn't producing anything that I was aware of. Fast forward a bit and he becomes active again, but it takes a while before I start exploring his twitter account and other aspects of his online presence. Much to my great surprise, it turns that we used to live in the same neighborhood—within shouting distance of each other.  He wasn't based in Europe at all, as it turned out, but right down the road. I had no idea! :D In all that time I never once spotted anyone on a bicycle of note. Ever. We simply never crossed paths.

    I have since moved out of that area, but it feels like I exist in Cosmo's parallel universe. He tweets pictures of markets that I go to, along with riding locations that I would've been at myself within hours of him. He references streets and locations all around town that are long familiar to me. Then I start to notice him on my Strava segments as well. He's like a ghost.

    Not that long ago I began working mornings at a local coffee roaster. Cyclists = Coffee, right? The owner is even a minor sponsor of a local cycling team. I see a lot of people coming and going on a daily basis, and that includes cycling enthusiasts, current and ex-racers, and ex-bike shop owners. But no one I talk to seems to know Cosmo.  :slow

    Most recently, Cosmo tweeted about running into ESPN's Kenny Mayne in a diner, and I know just which one he's referring to because Kenny is regular customer of ours, and he's mentioned the place himself. But still, no direct Cosmo sightings.

    But finally, at long last, I have confirmation that Cosmo Catalano does actually exist. One of our regular customers, who until very recently worked for Cannondale, revealed to me that he knows Cosmo from his college racing days. A breakthrough!  :P

    So let the countdown begin!

    When will the real Cosmo Catalano finally make an appearance, and what would you like me to pass along to him?
     :D
