stick with yours,i will stick with mine


Scientific blood tests don't lie. Of course your examples would be of cyclists artificially keeping their haematocrit around a particular level, proving my point even further.

Being fresh and getting better or worse during a GT is not totally the same thing especially if you enter a GT in bad shape. Ofcourse they wont be as fresh at day 20 as you were at day 1. You can however be better.

What are your thoughts about today race? And how the profile looks like?

Breakaway, sprint or a late attack?

And like I said, EVERYONE gets worse. Just some people that get worse than others, so it looks like they get better. I heard this out of the mouth of numerous professional cyclists by the way. ;)

Of course you get worse during a GT, you get tired. But a track rider who starts a GT five kilos overweight can come out of it in better shape than before.

Only the third race as a pro and already this. Tough break, kid! Better luck next time, I hope!
