His teammates didn't take off with abandon; Kuss took some seconds back after they disappeared into the fog.Highlighted what I want to answer; this could be true and would be a Jumbo thing to do.
Right now Wout looks like a saint in comparison lol.
This might just be a distraction to keep reporters from asking doping questions. If Kuss was towed to the line without any action, there would be nothing to talk about other than making comparisons to teams like USPS.
I'm almost certain that Kuss will win the Vuelta.
(Sorry, that has nothing to do with what you said; I was doing a follow up to what I said earlier. Carry on.)
