You've got the rose-tinted shades on today, 'aven't you, Tim?
Problem for Edvald these days is the fear of provoking his Achilles tendon. He could've gone faster, and in fact he said as much to Norwegian journo's, but he won't very likely risk putting in an all-out effort for a short TT in the CD, waking up tomorrow with an active tendinitis again. (- "It was OK. I put in an effort, but not to the max. I put into it what I felt comfortable with. My goal now is completing the CD, I'm not more ambitious than that as of now.")
For those who believe he had to start from scratch after the tendinitis, form-wise, having lost two months of training; Think again! There're all sorts of alternative training, and Edvald's been going at it, hammer and nails.
Remember Edvald thrashing Cancellara in the TT in Tour of Oman? The very same Cancellara that flourished in the spring classics right after?
Oh, ye of little faith. You'll see the light, eventually......
