It was only an example. There are many race situations in which I doubt there would be anyone who wants to work. Lets say there are only climbers left and not one single good sprinter, and Uran is with them. Do you think anyone would like to work and give Uran while Uran can rest?damian13ster said:Because Rio has different meaning than a single stage at Vuelta.
In the situation you mentioned, Kwiatkowski, Valverde and Rodriguez will work together for 2km to get Quintana since they know they will outsprint others anyway, and then still have time to recover once everything comes together
Moreover I'm not sure if they could catch Quintana that easily. Okay Kwiat is a good TT'er but the others? Ofc if they would work together perfectly they would catch him but 2 k's aren't a lot.
