When you rode XX for the first time, what were your first impressions?
That I had a piece of future under my hands.

After having XX on your bike for both training and racing, what advantages do you feel the XX 2×10 gearing offers you?
With the XX you can use way more of the big chainring, that’s the main advantage.

Before XX, how much experience did you have riding 2×9?
Just half year with c’ndale in 09, cause before I had 3×9.

What chainrings did you typically use – 26/39 or 28/42? How did you decide to use these gears?
28×42 but for new school XC races I think the best choice will be 26×39.

If you had to choose one single favorite aspect of XX, what would it be?
Perfect shifting, specially the derailleur.
