This past week will go down in history as the one that gave rise to the greatest camera shot ever taken at a bike race. 

The video came at the Tour of Norway, a four-day ProTour event, won by Alpecin-Deceuninck's Axel Laurance. I'll be honest, I didn't watch any of the race. You probably didn't, either. But one 17-second clip put it right at the front of my mind.
