You'd jump and try to bridge also. You're not going to let another team increase their numbers in a break.
Now you're the 3rd team. And you see 2 teammates of riders in the break attempt a bridge. What are you going to do? You're going to go also.
Now we've got 5 guys headed up the road to a 3 man break. What will the field do? Chase!
A minute later we're all closer to the break.
I admit the 2 got the jump & some distance on the field. If we had all reacted sooner it would have been shut down immediately.
