_nm___ said:made very little sense for the Swift, too, because Froome dropped him 300 meters from the line, which is too far for out
on top of that, Froome actually gapped Swift for a while when he went out of the saddle, forcing Swift to work hard to close that gap and lose precious strengths needed for the (300 meter long) sprint
Wiggins had done the same mistake at the tour: dropping his sprinter with 300 meters to go. that's too far
i think Wigggins did that twice at the tour, actually, with twice that exact same mistake
funny how they don't learn
in the end this only helps them make sure they won't be involved in a crash
Kind of like the way team GB were overconfident of their capabilities at the olympic RR.. they seem to underestimate their opposition at times.
