Probably some guys I mentioned got dropped already, and I couldn't really recognize every rider in front.

Feel free to add some names.

2nd group would be better waiting for 3rd if these time checks are accurate.

It's that wonderful time of the year when you start talking rude nonsense.

No matter how riding a chaingang works, if you're between 2 groups and the back group is catching both you and the group in front, I'd rather be part of the back group.

Plus if you were watching, you'd have noticed they've now turned and are just riding as pelotons.

they have JUST turned. I was talking about eheclons, what they were still riding. the smaller the eheclon the better in general. bigger means less riders can get in the chain and it becomes more nervous and riders not pushing through. why do you think echelons become so small? because all the riders not in the chain will drop eventually. so they are not needed anyway.

2nd group has already stopped chasing, the winner is always up front when echelons are formed.

Yes, the front echelon is so convinced of that they've stopped riding.
