The total domination of Gwin this season has meant that almost everyone chose as winner. The track La Bresse But he mixed up the cards. Gwin has been shown to be very strong on fast tracks, processed fairly and not too steep. Some Gwin also won Leogang and Mount Sainte Anne. The races, however, must be analyzed. A Leogang it is true that the slope and the coach was well, But let's not forget the long central part of cycling, taking second at that point it makes a serious claim on victory. Same thing goes for Mont Sainte Anne (where Lover fell which was less than half a second under Gwin just before the final cycled). There are two or three tough beautiful rock garden, but if compared to the length of the track, about 5 km, drittoni and pedaled the top, become a thing significant. So there would be quite wrong to argue that before La Bresse all tracks, in one way or another, favored athletic training, speed, resistance and pedaling.
A La Bresse But the music has changed. Very short track, therefore accessible to riders less highly trained. Little or nothing if not cycled on the initial Pratone. The rest of the track was mainly on the steep and above all very, very natural. A strip of land broken, tight and loose, which was reinterpreted in a different way for each run. In short a track old school, as stated by the same designer Remy Absalon. Under these conditions Gwin perhaps suffers a little’ and his victory does not become so predictable. In a few have predicted the victory of Lover. No one has even included Barrel and Cole in the first 5. This is just to remember that when a level track all riders, and the race well in the wet, no result is obvious.
No one has guessed the top 5, so we had to choose to reward the expectation that we went closer, practically limited to the first three because no one has entered Cole in predicting. So in our opinion if you won the prize fabry with the prediction “1.my – 2.gwin – 3.atherton – 4. macdonald – 5.heart”. We favor the meantime, the only three predictions have guessed the first place Lover, There seemed to guess correctly saw that the winner is probably the most important part of the forecast. Then fabry was the only, within the three provisions that gave Lover as a winner, to correctly predict the first three names, even if in the wrong order (gwin – atherton atherton instead of Gwin-). All in all it seemed to us then the prediction closer to the final result.
Now there remains but wait for the Tri-Ride World Cup Contest edition Val di Sole, and do not forget that even here we are on a very technical track and old school….weigh up!
