Pedal Wars

Interesting analysis by Richard Cunningham on PinkBike.

Apparently only one World Cup round in the last 2 years to October 2012 had been won on flats? His argument is that with the slackening of head angles from 66 to 62 degrees over this period allows riders to be more low and centred on the bike, rather than sitting back and driving your mass through the bottom bracket, which improves responsiveness but makes it harder to keep feet on pedals when churning out the watts.

Anyways, read for yourself:

I like it though, how right at the beginning, he puts it all into perspective for all the Cafe riders or Hard Parkers.
