if you have looked of the change of hushovds skills the last 2 year i will say that if 2-3% was good for him before 4-5 is in the same area now.meandmygitane said:That you only answered about a fifth of my points, is it something I should think of as important (eg that you don't have the answer for them)
My thoughts on this:
1) So if he can win with 200 meters of 5% he can win on 500 meters of 5%? I think if you slice the course in too thin slices it can be very deceptive.
2) My point is that the last kilometre is deciding the sprints in these cases (with exceptions of course), don't you consider the finish in Copenhagen harder than Geelong
Please show me where Hushovd has won where the last kilometre or last 500 meters is at least 4%.
If you do that I will consider Hushovd the number one favourite for 2011 worlds, deal?
He is a lot better climber now. with a 85% oxigen intake he for sure have the Engine.
