    Maybe on the track, and on very smooth pavement, but that is generally not the case off-road.

    Google "Schwalbe tire pressure study", "tire hysteresis", etc.

    Given the fact that he races for Astana, most people just assume that Nibali is dirty and move on.

    Eddy Merckx wasn't exactly the epitome of a clean athlete. Got popped 3 times. And, 455w at "only" "74kg" is 6.14w/kg. I have doubts that Eddy was that light.
