Cycling pro Tony Martin in an interview about escape attempts

Mr. Martin, for many years you were a specialist in both escape attempts and the task of catching up with escapees, i.e. preventing successful escapes. Let’s start with the escape. As a driver, how do you prepare for this? What has to fit together to say, okay, today I’ll try it?

There are two different goals that you can pursue with an escape group. One day you want to fight for the stage win, so you calculate your chances if you get into a breakaway. Then there are also stages, it’s clear that you can do whatever you want, that’s basically hopeless, the field won’t allow it, but there’s still a nice chance to present yourself at the front for a certain time. This applies primarily to smaller teams or drivers who are not quite as strong.
