Close but no cigar

Samu did well in today's Worlds road race. He looked to be Spain's strongest man, but eventually had to settle for 22nd place after missing out on the decisive move. Realizing that the break up the road were indeed going to stay away, he jumped clear of the remnants of what had once been the peloton to go in pursuit of the leading group. The chase proved fruitless though, but he can nonetheless be proud of his performance. He came in 22nd, only 1:22 in arrears.

I think he did a bad job actually this time. He was inbetween the peloton and the decisive breakaway in the last lap, together with the Belgians, but decided to wait for the peloton instead of going to the front with the belgians. Otherwise he could've been fighting for the victory.
