Making Them Chase PR17-7
With his long hair flowing, Daniel Oss (BMC) went off on his own with 36 kilometers left to race. Oss's move was a great piece of strategy for his team. Either those behind wouldn't be able to catch the Italian, or in their efforts they would give Oss's teammate, Greg Van Avermaet, a good long rest as the others chased him down. So this move is clearly a win/win for the Swiss/American team.
