If another rider doesn't start and finish with me, then being faster doesn't mean squat as my rides are never less than 40-60 miles. I've seen too many 10 mile wonders to worry about another guy passing.
My view: An ego crusher wouldn't have taken my wheel in the first place. Secondly, an ego crusher would have dropped you from the front of the line after taking a pull, not after resting on the back!
I've ran into a thousand guys like you describe. Many ride off PRETENDING not to be phased by the pace only to be seen down the road hiding behind a bush or a wall. After such an encounter, I keep my eyes open knowing what to expect and always let it be known that I-C-U!
Let it be known that if Mr. Beanz catches or passes a rider or group of riders, he will not take a wheel!
....Only exception being that we organized the ride together. But 99% of my riding is done without drafting, including organized rides/centuries.
