Some importants points:
-He wants to start the season slowly to peak at TdF and show his best there
-At 30 he can't improve his explosiveness what it's at max, but is more and more reliable and regular, so he can keep threshold for longer spells of time.
-He can improve his TT, this year he doesn't go to the wind tunnel but little fixes of his position on the bike.
-His test results show better results than those at end of 2008 (I guess it's a specific test not done every year and the journo knows)
