Andy has been riding with a fixed gear (44x16) for several weeks. He explains: "It's not easy to get back to a normal bike after that. But a fixed gear is a good way to find a smooth pedaling. I hadn't done this since being in the junior ranks..." And this idea was imposed to him by Johan Bruyneel, in order to improve his ITT skills.
I am fascinated watching and reading about how Johan Bruyneel transforms Andy into a tour winner for 2012.
