Seems there is a big difference between TT bikes and MTB bikes in the way
that they handle.

You'd think he'd be a natural for a technical course.

It's the curse of Saint-Etinne which strikes again.
Tour de France de 1956, TT starts in Saint-Etienne. Third in the GC: Wout
Wagtmans. He's very optimistic, but after five minutes all his hope seems to
be shatter when he makes a fall. Twenty km later a second blow: he has a
flat and looses a lot of time because the mechanic brings a frontwheel in
stead of a backwheel. Fifteen km before the finish he is overtaken by Stan
Ockers, started six minutes behind him. Wagtmans finishes 61th at 8'26" and
drops to the sixth place in the GC.

I think Ras must have broken a mirror seven years ago and had all his
bad luck in one day.
