Indeed, they do rely on other teams bringing it back a lot though. Most of the time it works for them, other teams always do it for them. Etixx almost did it today as well.Bye Bye Bicycle said:You do realize that there are seven-man teams at this race?
Craddock led the field throughout the day and dropped back early (and finished last with over 10 minutes behind Bobridge). Geschke and Dumoulin were focusing on their GC prospects. That leaves Haga, Timmer and de Kort, with the latter needed for his leadout duties. Hard to control a break of TT machines like Westra and Durbridge with such a small team.
