Dumbass only in a narrow sense. If you ask who, overall, is the most intelligent, best-prepared athlete, I'm not sure what the answer would be between Rapp and Potts.
Sometimes we here get so caught up in the minutae of bro-tech that we lose sight of all the really important things it takes to win races. And Potts knows how to win races.
And I use "we" because I'm fully guilty.
Fair point but race intelligence doesnâ€™t have to be mutually exclusive of equipment intelligence. He couldâ€™ve easily had and done both. Ride a pair of Conti race tires (and latex tubes) instead of Gatorskins and butyl and Kona 2015 might have been a different race. Thatâ€™s not even getting into the piece of shit bike he was using as I understand sponsor commitments and all that.
