Sepp Kuss is like many current talents that come from mountain bike racing or cyclocross..which if you have ever raced the disciplines are basically time trials in disguise. You drill it for @1 hour+ and suffer from start to finish if done correctly. Currently World champ is a cyclocross standout, Tom Pidcock, Peter Sagan, Woot all say that they gain benefit from non road . Kuss uses his Colorado and Andorra off road riding not only to improve climbing but bike handling and time trialing. Most mountain bike elite spend extensive time riding road bikes.Kuss doing a TT like this, in his 3rd GT of the year?
What sauce is Kuss on? Not even in the EPO days did we see things like this
I am sure that Kuss would be pleased that you find his GT and TT performances so fantastic that they are suspect of something sinister or super human. The peloton and overall results say something more routine. Kuss is a grunt not a racehorse, his times don't put him on any list of suspects.. Kuss is currently in red because of a perfect storm, literally of circumstances, contrary to your praise, Kuss is not a great time trialist, he is a pace setter and has never shown any skill for riding away from others on long climbs and certainly not riding away from people for multiple days over a multi week race.. Remco kept his gun in the holster today on stage 11 until @175 meters, Sepp answered by going all in and suckling on his wheel until the line..nothing extraordinary.. everyone will get marked down for ST..
