I should have expressed myself better.Echoes said:It's hard to compare road to MTB and I can't claim to be an MTB specialist but he did win a WC event this year, didn't he? That should be an improvement compared to last year. He also got better on the road but in MTB he's mixing it up with the best in the field while you cannot say he does on the road at this moment. Though what he does on the road is amazing.Riccò said:Like someone said before, much better this year on the road compared to his MTB.
What I meant to say is that compared to last year, his road performance stepped up a level, while what we have seen from him this year in XCO races is similar to something he has done last year (with the 2nd place in Albstadt and the recovery in Nove Mesto and even the first half of the Lenzerheide race).
