I think you don't understand (although it's been explained to you multiple times) that THIS WAS THE PLAN. Quickstep didn't let Kuss in the break, Jumbo just made it happen. They're just a stronger team. Having Van Baarle, Tratnik, and Valter riding their a.sses off all day for him and then Kuss finishing it off.Not at all! What diffence does it make? There could have been 100 Jumbo riders there, but only Kuss should not have been amongst them! Do you not get it? I conveniently fail to mention nothing.
What wasn't part of the plan is that afterwards one by one the rivals failed and the only remaining rivals were his own teammates.
