Slow poison

I remember reading an oldish Dakar report by Ron Ayers (I think) in which he described Peterhansel as "slow poison" when he was still on bikes. Talent and navigational instincts aside, he'd nibble away at any deficit and consolidate or defend his lead. It was (and still is) a devastating strategy. That is what Gordon has to beat.
