Tour de Beauce: Mégantic!

After watching this video on stage 3 Tour de Beauce: Saint Georges-Mont Mégantic, I felt compelled to compare it to the excellent 60 Cycles (here).

Surreally similar I find it refreshing. The 60 Cycles film had a catchy surf music soundtrack, this video has candid live audio complete with the howling wind.

Francisco Mancebo Perez won the queen stage to the top of Mont Mégantic beating out Bernardo Colex and Sebastian Salas up the steep 7.7 percent climb. Just before the video ended, Pat McCarty glided up to fourth place. Mancebo takes over the overall race lead, 22 seconds in front of Colex and Pat McCarty (31 secs. Spidertech).

The video shows Dom Rollin attacking in the early going finding form since his broken collarbone injury. Svein Tuft making sure his Spidertech team is well presented as the breakaway approached the ascent. Horns blaring, gears changing, wheels humming, the odd conversation... what a wonderful video!
