THE BIGGEST WEAKNESS REMCO HAS is that it has all come so fast, and so easy. He goes from teenage soccer phenom, to pro cyclist in a season...
... and punking the best in the world in short order.
But, he missed something grand today even though he unwittingly set it up perfectly a few days prior.
He should have won another stage win,
after another day dragging a bunch of riders around the course.
He's won twice at this year's Vuelta doing just that,
dropping everybody and soloing in.
He also lost twice,
pulling too much and paying for it.
So, everybody knows he's a beast,
they also know he can over do it and be beaten.
Which brings up the acting,
something he's never had to do because he's so darn good.
IMHO, today was a day to bring out the acting skills.
For mortals and pros,
acting is just another skill in our quiver.
Think of the great Mohammed Ali's
I'd pull if I could...
Oh, I'm cramping...
Sorry guys, I'm gassed...
All of that can be communicated...
and the all power body language
... it's easy,
should be practiced
and used judiciously.
Unfortunately, Remco is probably still too proud,
I can't blame him.
But, that's what I woulda done.
