It’s pretty obvious that the sport has grown exponentially. It will keep on growing and that’s only a good thing. Regarding my crit abilities I was already kinda crazy, going fast in the corners and handling my bike fairly well. I believe my short-term explosive power has improved.
It was not my decision, it was the Cinelli management. They decided they wanted an all-Italian team.
Regarding my injury, I suffered an acromio-clavicular joint dislocation. It translates in lots of pain and a lack of strength when pulling the handlebar. Even now, after 27 days, I’ve not yet fully recovered. In addition to that, now my shoulders are slightly asymmetrical…haha! But I do feel lucky not to have broken my collar bone!
I’m not superstitious, I just need to handle my thoughts and focus on my concentration before the race. I do nothing specific except sleeping and eating, which certainly don’t qualify as superstitions!
