GCN have made a wonderful film of the 2018 race. Tracking the progress of presenters Simon Richardson and spaniard Oscar Pujol – who came away with the best newcomer award in 8th position – the video combines lots of warm vox pops, onboard camera footage, hand-held footage of suffering on the hilltops, and best of all, some in-the-pub scenes, where they fill the table with empty glasses to make it look like they had a skin full the evening before the race.

We know it wouldn’t happen, lads.
