Really enjoyed todays race for differing reasons. The race considering i watched it all was mostly standard fare but the setting and the Norwegian people made it interesting. The scenary is stunning.

Also great to see Degenkolb back involved in finishes, i do like him. DVP is in fine form at the moment too and appears to be really improving.
I didn't watch the race, but I notice these two tweets:

Paul Voß ‏@paulvoss86 6m
'Viking of the day' should go to the camera motorbikes here in Arctic. They doing a good job in motor pacing riders. #ArcticRace #sarcasm

Matt Brammeier ‏@Mattbrammeier85 11m
So boys, what can we do about these motorbikes pacing breaks & the peleton? They are ruining our sport. @BrianCooksonUCI can you help us?

Agree for the peloton, they had an easy job today what with the 4 motos pacing in formation ahead. For the breaks not so much. Great win for Moscon, what kind of rider is he - 3week or oneday?
