I would be a rider like Kwiatkowski. Able to do it all. And if I desired, specialize. As it is, he could easily captain a team as well as being a super domestique.

65-66 kg at 1.76 m. Mid weight and mid height. I have a great 1 minute effort which is suited for short, steep hills. I tend to do better on shortish ramps than muritos. As a mountain biker, I'm also great in bad weather (rain is my favorite weather), love riding on cobbles and gravel and taking risk downhill.

I've always suffered on longer climbs (anything longer than 4 km, actually) but when I weighted less my pace was a lot better. My times against the clock are also quite bad. My endurance is good, I'm able to handle long rides but my 30 minutes effort has always been bad. So MTF and time trials (all kinds) are my weak points.

In theory, I should be better in the Ardennes than the Northern classics due to my size but I enjoy the later much more.

Philippe Gilbert, from his punchy days. Obviously much, much, much worse.
"Es el mejor con y sin" - someone very bright on Valverde.

I'd like to be a good teammate. From my sporting days, I was never the best athlete, never the tallest, fastest, strongest. But I am happy to say I maximized my potential. Based on that, LOVE to be a general team rouleur protecting the studs and leading them out for wins;) I'd love to give my all for the sake of a valued teammate.

I'd be a retired multimillionaire, if that's a permitted type.

It suits my age and bodytype.
