When you rode XX for the first time, what were your first impressions?
The shifting with the chainrings is much easier than before. Just push it and it will happen! And this with full Power and Speed.

After having XX on your bike for both training and racing, what advantages do you feel the XX 2×10 gearing offers you?
I have the full range from the gears I need for training and racing. Same than 3×9! With just two chainrings I have to shift less and that means less problems.

Before XX, how much experience did you have riding 2×9?
I had 2×9 in 2009. The front shifting was not that good. In world champs I rode with a 40 chainring so I could ride nearly everything with the big chainring, but i had just a 34 cassette.

What chainrings did you typically use – 26/39 or 28/42? How did you decide to use these gears?
I used both. I did really good experiences with the 26/39. It’s perfect if you know the course and it’s not to fast. For marathon I don’t think it’s ideal. With the 39 chainring and 36 cassette i could ride nearly everything. For races the 26 is a little bit to small.

If you had to choose one single favorite aspect of XX, what would it be?
That’s again the chainrings! They work fantastic together and are stiff.
