I don't think he was ever pigeon-holed as a crit rider. He has always been capable of winning on any course. Were it not for dirty Federation politics, he would have been on the 96 Olympic team, and the way he was going that summer, he likely would have won the RR.
Except it's his second trip over to Europe and all his racing was here...and he even talked about the huge difference between that racing and what's done over here and how hard it was/is to make the transition. That's my point...brought out by the Velonews op ed piece two editions ago about how the US domestic riders struggled in the Tour of California against the stage racers.
I admire his perseverance. And since he's only got about 20k to go today, hopefully he'll hang on to the lead.
Great job regardless of the outcome.
We need more events like the Virginia (US Open) race a few weeks ago.
