Race Scenario: undergeared
The following scenario and series of questions is for learning purposes only. There is no answer key because the point is to ask more questions, debate, discuss, think critically and learn.
You are undergeared in a sprint.
1. Would you consider shifting even though the sprint has already started?
2. Would you personally be better off if the gear was too big? Why or why not?
3. Do you think you could still do well in the sprint with the smaller gear?
4. Would you still try to stand even though you're undergeared? If so, how would you decide when to sit back down and spin?
