Matthew Glaetzer

I have been watching the Berlin World Cup on demand and MG is a beast. When he jumps, you can actually see the gap instantly open up. From the back, when he makes his move, he is like big cat, just sliding past. He was impressive in the semi, beating that 19 year French Rider. That kid retired Jason Kenny, so he has a turn of speed. I have only seen the first ride of the final against Mattthijs Buchli, but it was a clash of the titans. MB made a move from the back and gapped MG, but hesitated for an instant. That is all MG needed to close the gap down and time the pass to perfection. Just amazing racing.

On the basis that there isn't a "Michael Gleazer" racing in the World Cup at the moment, I assume he probably does.

He is a beast though. Muscles in places where I don't have places, or any realistic hopes of having them.
