Having already cranked up the volume when Kwiatkowski followed Peter Sagan‘s attack on the Poggio, the two commentators were clearly on the edge of their seats as the race entered the final 500m with their man sitting in second wheel behind the world champion.
As Sagan opened the sprint, the sense of professionalism was retained, but as the director cut to an overhead shot which showed Kwiatkowski accelerating up behind his rival, that quickly went out of the window.
What comes next needs no translation, as the final metres of the race consist of both men shouting “Michal” at the top of their voices, letting out cheers as their man crosses the line in first place.
