The reality is that road cycling is uniquely course-dependent. I am a climber—and there has never, in the history of modern women’s cycling, been a one-day race with a climb like Rio’s. I was fully aware of that rarity. Tokyo is slated to be one for the sprinters—effectively not the same sport for me, really. The road cyclist will never get the swim-off, the rematch. Each race is actually once in a lifetime.
This is either really beautiful, or really stupid.
