Pressing Their Advantage
As I have said earlier, their are strong rules of conduct and chivalry in the peleton. Another hard rule is to never attack a competitor when they have had a crash or a mechanical. The riders want to win by superior strength, team or training and not by superior luck. However, today when Wiggins was off the back, all of the teams of the major contenders came to the front and drove the pace. I can only assume that this was because Wiggins was having trouble and had not crashed.
