Without question, I am a climber. I love the hills and hate the flats. My buddy is my exact opposite, which makes up pretty fun training partners. He murders me on the flats, but as soon as we hit a climb, I blow on by.

That sums up my speciality areas.

Assuming I'm in shape however I would be a sprinter/TT type of guy. My climbing abilities are more hold on as long as I can and make up time on the down side of the hill.

Now I don't go around bragging about it, but it's what I seem to be best at. I actually climb to get to the TOP. The downhill doesn't do it for me. It's just a transition to the next climb. :-)

Sprinting is my obvious weakness. I actually feel strange in the drops and out of the saddle.
