The guy that won the tour was on the same tires. It’s a lot of luck and chance and timing. It’s hard because you don’t get many opportunities where it all comes together, all the moons align and they’re chasing Mancebo and you can just sit on. That’s what I’ve learned, when you sense an opportunity you need to take it. ((Manual #3: ACT AGGRESIVELY)) Had I not flatted I could’ve won Redlands. I was pretty devastated to say the least.—Morgan Schmitt
