3) You are SUPER strong. You stay at the front the entire time. Every time there's a prime, people swarm you, and eventually a break gets off.
4) Continuation of #3. No break gets off, but you get swarmed the last lap, as everyone and their mother, who have been hiding in your draft the entire time, come pouring up the sides. You take 32nd place.
I would put my money on #2, then #1.
