Some of the world's best time trialists:Galic Ho said:Tell that to Cancellara after the Annecy ITT in 2009. Guy was fuming. He thought it was BS as well. Still does. One skinny guy spanked him. 63 kilograms versus 80 kg. I know who should win, who almost did.
Chris Boardman, Jacque Anquetil, Tony Rominger, Bernard Hinault, Greg LeMond...
Pretty much all of these guys are less than 64kgs (except maybe Anquetil).
Why does everyone think that Cancellara is the only guy who's ever been able to ride a time trial, ergo all time trialists must look like him?
It's not his musculature which is responsible for his power output or success, it's his cardiac output and capillary density.
