Hard to say exactly how it compares to WVA's, and I doubt he's too interested in time trials, but my guess is MVDP has plenty sustained power to win Roubaix multiple times. If you didn't catch stage 5 at BinckBank this year, you should check it out.Genuine question: I’ve still not seen a lot of MVPs riding compared to WVA’s road appearances, but from what I’m reading here and in other articles, on the road MVP is really well suited to do well (or perhaps dominate) at races like RVV and Amstel because he’ll so good at all the short climbs, repeated sprints out or all the corners (on those courses), and also wields a great finishing sprint. But does that translate to him matching WVA at Roubaix, where the biggest factors can be staying upright (they both should fare well compared to full-time roadies) and sustained power output? Of course, reading the race is also important there, but I don’t which of those two get the edge in that department. Thanks—starting to look forward to the Spring Classics season!
ed. Ah, sorry if this isn’t the right thread— I was following up Senna’s post about SB and Roubaix.
