His training rides pre TDF were 250+km in the Alpes. What hard miles is he missing? Hard miles is a new synthetic haemoglobin?In his most recent big sit-down interview Chris claims all that he is missing now is the "hard miles in the legs."
Really? How many more miles can he do? He is constantly out pedalling isn't he? Has been for almost the last two years.
Chris's only real admission is that he lacks power in bursts (like staying with the peloton on a Cat.2 climb although he doesn't put it like that).
Can this really be solved by more "hard miles"?
Surely Chris will have to come up with something more than that to achieve a second unprecedented transformation.
