It was a great ride by them, they’re really showing themselves to be as strong as any team in the race. To have 4 men in that group is really impressive. Almeida might be taking a little on himself a couple times, so we’ll see about that tomorrow.
It's a good point but with bonus seconds on the line, perhaps it's a little tricky to balance the "save yourself" from "don't loose seconds".

Almeida got 6 bonus seconds so I don't really understand the point. They had every reason to ride.
Exactly, especially as Almeida comes really close to the victory, it was just a matter of centimeters. This shows the team has a lot of trust in him.

If every team who works hard to bring their sprinter/leader in the best possible conditions to a sprint finish, only to finish second on the stage, is seen as gifting the stage to the winner then there are a whole lot of gifts in cycling.
