They are the best. World record too.

Can anyone tell why they have 4 cyclists and one always drops to the back and eventually one drops out ? Still haven't caught onto why they do that.

The grandchildren have been somewhat banished to the garden today. Feeling guilty now. (no I'm not). Thoroughly enjoyed all of the races today.. The tennis seems tame after these high powered sports.

They take turns at the front, where it's hardest because of air resistance, while the others "shelter" in the leader's slipstream. When the leader is tired, he/she drops to the back for a rest. Eventually one who is in the lead rides him/herself to exhaustion, increasing the group speed, then drops out. The time is taken from when the third rider crosses the line, and it wouldn't actually help to have another rider at the end.


Carpe diem.

Thanks Chris. I thought the final three could be due to being little point in four of them getting in each others way, but did not at all understand the reason for dropping back.

Didn't they do well ?

It's not horsey dancing rubbish, it's 'Dressage'. You wouldn't be able to make your wife do that, let alone a four legged friend. So there ! Well done GB.
