You need to ride more conservatively if you wish to podium or win a GT, unless you are classes above the opposition Which means you don,t peak too early - Finally don't underestimate how taxing doing three consecutive GT's cn be.Valv.Piti said:Thats exactly what he shouldn't do. Ride more conservatively? Heck no, riding a bit more conservatively would have resulted and one stage win and he would have bonked massively today either way.yaco said:This is a good opportunity for Simon to understand his body better and to continue to build up his endurance - Ride more conservatively at the Vuelta and a top 5 or a podium is a strong possibility - Fairly certain he will stay with the team.
He peaked a bit too early and suddenly all lights just went off, bad recovery or something. But riding conservatively definitely isn't the answer with the characterics he has.
