Watched part of the Tour of Basque country the other day. The leaders were in the mountains surging ahead of the Peloton. I noticed in this race and the '07 & '09 TdF that AC is out of the saddle a majority of the time when climbing. Even if he is just riding with others on a climb he is up. Would anyone consider this a sign of weakness or just his preferred style? Just curious on others thoughts.
