in today's comminquee they clarified that Knox was "Sheltering for a very long time at a high speed behind a support team vehicle".The DSQ of Knox was cruel, as he crashed and got concussion tested. Rather idiocy for the organizers there.
He should go fulllTT mode during the climb, not reacting to Yates and Vine accelarations, then sprinting full gas the last 300 meters or so and try to comeback there or in the descent. In fact he can use the biker Milan Vader to pace him for a while, he was 10th at the top of Nettle Hill today.I am interested in how Dennis gets up Corkscrew Hill - He won the stage up Paracombe Hill which has similar gradients to Corkscrew. Yates will need to attack on Corkscrew Hill and in-form he can do damage. Doubt that Matthews will be back for the next Aussie summer as he wanted to win one of the National Championship or the TDU.
