They said he swapped wheels but I looked and he had the same wheel going out and coming back into town. 

I saw in the footage he stopped. But he didn’t swap wheels. He got back on very fast too. 

Im with ex.  He never had a puncture. 

mmmm, might try that with other competitors at western Sydney....

I've tried it in bike races. It's best on a piece of dead road or false flat where they really are feeling they should be going faster. Best if you get 2 or 3 people do it to the same person. :)

And before anybody asks, no, nobody has ever stopped, but we did get one guy dropped off the back because he was looking at his back wheel so much.

he stopped made up a puncture then busted out huge watts to catch up, well that makes about as much sense as a brexit policy combined with a trump tweet

From the looks of the vision, he had to re-seat the wheel as he was tightening the skewer.

I'll hunt the vision in the next few days.

Maybe his brakes were rubbing. Or he thought they were.

It was fun Peter, but put them out of their misery.

Mind you, this only shows he changed the wheel, it doesn't prove it was flat. ;)

Hang on.  The vision I saw he was right at the turn in hawi.  

Also if he got a new wheel isn’t that outside assistance?

Not for the pro's.

 

Keinle swapped a wheel a few years back and blew up trying to catch back up.

This proves nothing. He probably just took the stickers off the back wheel.
