Ineos were smart in the crosswinds. They put a lot of effort in to make the echelon and increase the time gap but then peeled off the front and let the other teams do all the work.
What? How do you put alot of effort in to make the echelon then put work in to make the time gap but then make other teams do all the work.

You can't do loads of work and then claim everyone else done the work it's a paradox

It's easy. You ride at the front and then you don't. You put in a hard effort to make the gap and then you sit in the wheels to try and recover. Kwiat did it really well because he knew that he still had to help Bernal with positioning in the final 3kms.

So did they do loads of work or did they make the other teams do all the work. Can't be both so either Ineos shared the work or made other teams do all the work

"Loads of effort" are your words. They set up and shared the work as the echelon was made and then they did less as other teams had more domestiques who took on the pulling at the front. Not like they stayed on the front to the finish line sprint.
