I'm always wondering if a single second is really worth the effort in a three week race. Like, we always hear how important it is to conserve as much energy as possible and never make a single needless effort, but then they are sprinting for such small gains.
1 second not so much, but gaining 3 every time you kinda force your opponents hand to take the 2 seconds or contest. Potentially a swing of 6 seconds.
