The Art of Descending: “Cross-gradation turns faster, and that’s what makes the difference” | a trip

Tom Bedcock (Ineos Grenadiers) accelerated yesterday on the queen stage after the summit of the Col du Galibier of the peloton. Then the 22-year-old Briton fell like a stone.

“There are always a few riders that stand out during the descent, but with strikers you can see more of the tech pop up,” says rider Sep Vanmarcke.

“The bends you see in front of you can be taken by the average professional rider. They are basically ‘blind’ bends, where the bend appears suddenly behind a boulder, which the modelers can appreciate much faster than we can, and they make a difference with it.”

With Wout van Aert it always seems so easy going downhill. He led the group down. “He’s tough on his bike,” says Karl Vannieuwkerke. At a rate of 90 kilometers per hour, the Wellcome Café men greeted Norderwijk and said, ‘Yo, guys.’

It’s of course a gift that runners have and an added bonus on a big ride. “30 years ago, the business was less than that,” Vanmarke says.

“Now the relegation is an important part of the race, which we have also been alerted to. We have to be ahead, because he can rip in the peloton in certain parts, as happened the day before yesterday,” concludes Vanmark.
