I don't think I've ever said that it's impossible for an IP rider to become a GC rider, but few do it, and I'm not buying that Wiggins IP quality explains his GC candidate transformation. It's an unlikly late switch.armchairclimber said:As you so rightly pointed out, preeminence at 800m doesn't make a good candidate for the Javelin. It didn't stop Steve Backley though.
He didn't know he had potential until he tried. Then he had to train with "specificity" (a coaching buzz word) in mind. It's not a difficult thought process this, honestly.
