O’Grady did a grand tour prologue on a fixie TT a couple years ago and the Brits have a fetish for fixie TT…nothing new under the sun…
and I did some calculations on my cadence when we sprinted…180rpm…. butterflies don’t flutter like that!
O’Grady did the 1.1km Prologue in the Giro on a fixed gear. It was down a ramp, dead straight, and hard. He was money until about 800m when he pretty much spun out.
