Comments from Jesper Therkildsen: Thomas is a very light rider and that explains why his performance seems low compared to some of the other riders in the project. But when you look at the watts per kilogram, you will realize that he is a strong and powerful rider.
His training program for the next month will be 13 to 17 hours weekly training with focus on building a large aerobic engine.
Thomas has an impressive sprint power compared to his low body weight, but I guess that the absolute power is too low to win bunch sprints but strong enough to have a chanceÂ in smaller groups or steep climb sprints.
Thus, he will have to improve his VO2 max and threshold power to make him able to make winning moves (or toÂ reduce the size of the group)Â before he gets to the final sprint.
