Yup the camera crew is there anyway. ..Special episode on Belgian tv next week: Remco wins monumental cycling race, he is officially better than Eddy MerckxCan he now speak to the press again?
Mostly the hilly races where hills are short enough that the majority of time is still on flat roads. In fact I think he's better on the flat on a road bike than in TTs compared to other riders. Make of that what you will.Just thinking about Remco, doesn't he have a very specific skillset, besides of TTing, of being capable of long range attacks and staying ahead of the peloton? This makes him very dangerous in hilly races.
This is very unique, but also it seems to me very limited in the nature of the races he's able to win. Not that he won't win, but things like a GT appear to need a different sort of riding.
i agree. (aside: why do you think i keep pushing for more TTs and hilly stages in GTs... ;-) ) i commented in the race thread that he has a habit of attacking on the flat or false flat (after other action has happened and he senses riders are catching their breath). think about it: Tour of Belgium 2019, San Sebastian 2019, Tour of Poland 2020 and now this. if he gets the gap, he can then take advantage of his CdA and TT away from a group that is either tired or unwilling to work together (or both).Mostly the hilly races where hills are short enough that the majority of time is still on flat roads.
