I don't really believe them. The DS tells Woods "start sprinting in the last corner, take the inside line". The next scene they are talking about "Woods didn't know it was the last lap". Doesn't make sense to me.
It could be the way the film was edited, or perhaps radio communication was not working at that point.

It was kind of funny to see JV explain what happened.

Mollema denies it, too:

 

Surgery was succesful, Mollema is already on his way home.

Expected recovery time is 6 weeks, the team don't expect him to ride again this season
 
It's definitely not simply reading races and tactics. He races with more conviction, do or die. The young Mollema was more of a follower that was hard to get rid of in stage races. Now he's focusing more on classics it seems and one day races. He races more like Evenepoel than anyone else in the peloton that i can think of right now. If he didn't get a 30s gap by the time Bernal attacked, they would have caught him again, and people would be saying he went too soon considering there were still two climbs and Bernal and Landa were on his tail. Maybe they'd even say it was dumb or naïve. Being able to extend that gap, made all the difference though, and that was not due to tactics.
