It's About the Position
The Time Trial, or the Race of Truth, is all about the individual's ability to slip through the wind with the least amount of drag possible. To that end, Tejay van Garderen, drops into his aerodynamic tuck, with his arms as close together as possible, the head down and the back arched all to present as little of his body to the wind. The bikes are designed with the same basic purpose. However, neither the bike nor the position of the rider astride the machine, are about control or agility, they are only about speed.
