Bigger goal for Taylor Phinney: Time Trial rainbow stripes or prized Paris-Roubaix cobble? We find out
By Chris Lyman
How has the season gone so far? Are you where you expected to be?
It’s gone pretty well. It hasn’t been like a super, super season. But I got a great result in Milan-San Remo with the top 10 (he finished seventh). Unfortunately, I didn’t quite get the result I wanted at my key, target race: Paris-Roubaix. Other than that, the first half of my season has gone by pretty quickly.
As you continue to grow and learn, what’s most critical?
I’d say it’s probably more on the fitness side of the things due to the fact that I’m a lot bigger than most of the people that I race with. It’s taken me a couple more years for the watts to even out with the weight of my 85 kilos and being almost two meters tall.
