What is bicycling form

When the pros state that they do not have good form, what do they mean?

They are saying that they are not in good shape.

Like the Wonder Twins. Shape of water. Form of an eagle.

If I heard a pro say that, or I read it, I think I would interpret it as meaning poor technique. A poor pedal stroke/spin, poor use of strategy in a busy race, poor posture on the bike, etc.. Of course it all has to do with context how when and to whom he/she said it..

shape is fitness or conditioning.

When they say form, they mean physical conditioning.

basically it means even though they are having a **** day, they can still kick the ass of you and me!

It means they are not able to perform as well as they want to, as not as fit as they could be. Nuff said

Would they be "pro" wrestlers by any chance?
