Puncheur, le diesel: In Road cycling, these riders have explosive speed and use it on short, but steep gradients with sudden attacks. They can trouble the sprinters but have the staying power to keep up with the top climbers for a considerable distance.
Simon Gerrans, Australian puncheur, is a favourite for the 2010 UCI world champs, as well as the Hilly Ardennes Classics.
