Yes, that is true. Not that he is slow in a sprint, but he is a bit slower than some of his main rivals like Cancellara, Stybar and obviously not as fast as the likes of Boonen, Kristoff and Degenkolb, so he will have to ride intelligently as well. I also think he is still a bit too young and naive in his riding style and not cynical enough. I could see him drop everyone on the Paterberg if he has a good day, though. Last year Cancellara was on the limit and he seems to decrease a bit by each year.Netserk said:He is strong as a bull and he certainly doesn't spare himself. I do fear that he will mostly just get good placings until he starts riding more cynically.
