Look at the picture above, then look again. The rider on the right is Sir Chris Hoy of Scotland, undoubtedly one of the best track riders ever to grace the boards, and a four times Olympic Sprint Champion. On the right is Felix English of Ireland (the irony of that name), not even a sprinter by trade who usually wins KOM prizes. The picture above is Felix English eliminating Chris Hoy from the European championships in Poland. How can that be (look at the thigh size alone)? It is truly a lesson in racing to the line. Hoy eased up to save energy and not humiliate his younger rival. Felix had nothing to loose, and gave it full gas to the line. The result? Probably the biggest scalp of his career. You have to love a surprise like this. Come on Sir Chris get your ass out on the road and shock a few spindly little climbers. You don’t have to get over the climbs, you will scare them just standing next to them on the start line.
