#SVENNESS No. 2

#SVENNESS No. 2, A Tale of Two Lines. In this installment we look at an unassuming 180 degree turn at Superprestige Geiten. Sven has his favorite line and the Sunweb-Revor boys have their favorite. Is one better than the other? Keep an eye on the entry and exit of these guys on each lap to see where they start and where they end up.

This may not be a strategically important part of the course, although it could spell disaster for one of our featured players, but it is a good look at how the pros pick their lines.

Also included is the interminably long sprint. Does Sven wait too long to get in those drops?

    I’m loving these videos! Any insight on how pack position might play a role? Especially in the scrum on lap 3, I think you’ve really got to anticipate things like how much you’ll have to decelerate and delay your acceleration out of the corner to avoid running into the guys in front of you/taking other lines.

    Sold. Or, yeah, he would have been in the drops from the last corner.
