My top end speed is really good but it’s getting to that top end speed that I lack a little bit of punch to really get up. I’m the type of sprinter who will go a lot earlier, where Robbie McEwen and Mark Cavendish will leave it up to the last 100m or as late as possible because they have such a good kick. But I’m the type of rider who will be starting my sprint from 250 and getting quicker and quicker and I’ve got that real good high power I can hold from riding team pursuit. So while I wouldn’t say I’m a bunch sprinter, I would see myself as a good sprinter in a breakaway of say 10-20 riders when it comes down to that kind of stage finish.
I would like to see myself as a Stuart O’Grady type of a sprinter where again if it’s been a real hard, tough stage and while some of the sprinters might still be there it’s been a hard ride, and then you can be right up there. The same thing if there’s been a split in the bunch and it’s been hard for 20-30 riders and I found myself there at the end. That when I think I would be really good as maybe a second or last lead up man for your team where I can get up there and hold my position.
