Stage racing partners (Part 2)
Here's Lou's views on choosing a stage racing partner.
M: What do you look for in a partner for multi-day races?
Lou: Someone without a huge ego, who is patient and wont give up when it’s hard. Someone with a similar riding style…a climber.
M: What's the main challenge when racing with a partner?
M: Any advice on choosing a partner?
Lou: If possible ride together before the race. Discuss various situations. What do you do when one of the pair can’t keep the pace since it’ll definitely happen.
