J.A. had a very interesting cycling style, toes down and it seems he was using his arms and feet as a kind of push/pull.
Can you share any insight on is unique style?
I don't see many modern pros cycling this way.
Watching the Tour of Cali today it crossed my mind.
I did notice that the pros cycle with their knees very close to the top tube in an almost "knock knee" style which makes sense to keep the legs etc in line with the pelvis.
They also seem to have a smaller frame with a long seat post, more aerodynamic position and the smaller frame is probably lighter and stiffer ie easier to control.
Just a few observations, any insight would be great.
