Basso visits posturologist (?) to improve TT

Ivan Basso, who finished 7th in the 2003 Tour, is concentrating on his time-trialing, where he lost about 10 minutes to Ullrich and Armstrong.

"He's a chiropractor that I'm seeing to improve the mobility of my spine," said Basso of his new guru, the Dane Ole' Soeli. "My problem remains the same: I just can't bend properly, I'm not very aerodynamic and my lack of air penetration penalises me terribly."

"At the same time I'm trying to practice pedalling at very high cadences to improve my agility," the 1999 world under 23 road race champion added.

The ProCycling.com article also quotes former pro rider Davide Cassani as telling Basso in 2001 he looked '"bloody awful" in the saddle.'
