It takes a lot of planning, a lot of strategy, to actually pass somebody; it just doesn’t occur in a flash if the bloke’s going at roughly the same speed as yourself. You don’t simply say to yourself, ‘Right, I’ll pass him now’; you must build-up for it. You probe and you feel; all the time that you are racing against him you are working out where you are going to pass him, where is going to be the best place to pass, where he is a little bit quicker than you and where you are a little bit quicker than he.
All these things have to be weighed up and you’ve just got to time it right. It takes a lot of working out – unless the fellow makes a mistake; then, of course, you want to be in the right spot when he makes the mistake. If you pressure somebody hard enough he might make a mistake, but then you have still got to be on his tail and in control to take advantage of it. And this is not always possible.
