Do you have it?

01Apr09

While reading the Competitive Cyclist “What’s New” page, I found this little nugget:

Allen Lim once told us he has a simple entrance exam to see who’s got real potential in the pro ranks: “Go out and do a 4,000kj ride, then time trial up Flagstaff. Tell me your time. I’ll tell you if you’re worth a shit.”

First off, well said. I have indeed done this exact sequence of riding and I can attest that it is probably a pretty good measure of your talent, fitness and ability. 

I don’t know what my time up Flagstaff was, but I’m pretty sure Ralph dropped me on the second switchback.
