AC is like a wolf. he prods, retreats, prods, retreats, prods, and then retreats; giving his prey a false sense of security. Then he attacks. Thats the charm of AC.
The dawg was scared that AC will launch another attack after some tight corner, and he was forced to follow AC's wheel closely. This is what a wolf does to lambs--force them to make mistakes.
I have seen a fair few wolves in my time... But never one running down the road with lambs chasing him...
But I get what you mean...
