Manual for Speed asked Team Exergy’s Carlos Alzate, who was consistently finding the podium at Speed Week, about his predilection for attacking a long way out rather than waiting to take advantage of his speed in a bunch sprint.
It’s just that I don’t like, or at least I’m not used to, staying in the pack and waiting for the group sprint. I like going and looking for the race win on my own. Things are going to change, though, because Fred [Rodriguez] keeps telling me to wait until the end. I’ll need to have much more patience, and control myself.
