Compare & Contrast… a wheel change
Back in September 2009, on the Alto de Monachil during stage 13 of the Vuelta a Espana, there was a wheel change that was so poorly done that it may well have cost the leader of the ‘combination classification’ (ie. the white jersey) the overall title of the third Grand Tour of the season. Prompted by a recent speedy wheel change at the Tour Down Under, we thought we’d compare and contrast the work of poor mechanics against that of a good one…
What would you prefer? Neutral service or Mr Tismo at your service?
Big thanks to Sean Yates and Filip Tismo for having me on board in the Sky team car during stage one of the 2012 Tour Down Under.
