Video: You ever "check out" on a hard ride? The pros explain how

The Orica-Scott guys know how to win races. But they know all about checking out too. Check out Irish born and bred Chris Juul Jensen.

 

Anyone in the Giro d’Italia right now is a top rider. You don’t get onto these teams unless you can really move.

And if when you make the grade, you don’t make the line-up for the big events unless you’ve proven yourself.

But cycling can be as much about knowing your limits as it is having a very good engine.

And on Grand Tours, or simply when you’re riding yourself into the ground, you need to back off.

In this Backstage Pass video from the Orica-Scott guys on the Giro, they discuss the concept of checking out.

The shirtless lad in here with the Irish accent is Chris Juul Jensen. You can read all about him by following this link.
