You donít have to watch your weight like hill climbers. Just be generally fit in terms of body fat. Itís not uncommon for cyclists to develop an unhealthy obsession with weight.

Regarding big gears, even smaller riders and juniors are able to do it with training. But you canít just slap on a 12t cog and expect success. The adaptation period can be a while.
