Would be a better Olympics prep, though, as we all know Evenepoel is low-key (or not so low-key) going for the Giro win.Can't wait for the Giro to be canceled so Lefevre can never shut up about how he would've won the Giro by 25 minutes.
I think it's easily possible, but I think the difference is mainly the duration of the peak. And especially a third peak in a season is the hardest to maintain, and probably only good for a week or two of one day races.Would be a better Olympics prep, though, as we all know Evenepoel is low-key (or not so low-key) going for the Giro win.
Peaking in May and then again peaking late July - possible for sure, but the 1st peak could be the highest.
It does. It just no longer deviates 10% from the year round form. I'm starting to wonder how much preperation differs between GTs, one day races and shorter stage races. They're putting out huge W/kgs in February now, and I don't think that means they'll go super much higher in GTs, but this is probably on a shorter, more specific prep for a 20 minute watts bazooka while GTs training may be much more focused on endurance.Does peaking even exist anymore?
Evenepoel and Lefevere claim that Evenepoel is not in top shape yet (and won't be in T-A either). The implication is that he's peaking for the Giro, IMO.Does peaking even exist anymore?
Why waste your time peaking. He clearly can just show up and win any race he wants.Evenepoel and Lefevere claim that Evenepoel is not in top shape yet (and won't be in T-A either). The implication is that he's peaking for the Giro, IMO.
“Hij heeft bergop nog niet getoond wat Egan Bernal en Tadej Pogacar wel al getoond hebben”, eindigt hij. “In de Giro kan hij de volgende stap zetten, maar eerlijk: ik verwacht niet dat hij drie weken lang gaat meedoen voor het roze.”
Nine more days before Remco races again. It seems like a long wait. I hope he's ready when the time comes. Looking forward to it.
It's probably from the relatively recent change from junior gearing after skipping U23Ullrich was a grinder. Lance spun a high cadence, which is now the standard for time trialists. Remco's is even higher than most now, around 110 rpm.
I think he might have overcompensated after coming from the juniors, where he was obligated to ride with restricted gears. Finally "freed" from those tiny gears, he might have "overshot" and gone with gears that were too big, and also didn't suit his style.It's probably from the relatively recent change from junior gearing after skipping U23
Seriously though, a lot can be found on TIZ. And Adriatica Ionica is on youtube. Also the junior Road WCC.Tirreno cancelled.
Fortunately I still have recordings of the Baloise Tour, San Sebastian, WC ITT, San Juan and Algarve.
I'll need them.
Huh? Remco is also "a classics guy" as he's riding Flèche and Liège is his first big goal. And what would they have him race prior to the Giro then? They would be insane not to put him in PN, given he's prepared to race TA anyway.Lampaert hinted yesterday in Extra Time that there will be some shifts in the Paris-Nice line-up (if it goes through), but that the classics guys have priority. Meaning Remco in P-N is highly unlikely.
