That is far from the truth, I've had several women suck our wheels then blow by in a full sprint. Last gal was about 2 weeks ago. 3 of us ride by after closing a gap of about 1/2 mile. We're cruising when she takes our wheel. She sucks for a mile then blows by and shouts, "thanks for the pull guys!". Yeah, we keep our pace and 3 minutes later she fades like watercolors in the rain. I rolled by looked at her and went "Pfft!":D
Month before my wife and I roll up on another couple, again from a mile behind. As we get ready to pass, she blocks me by speeding up then says "step on it honey" to her hubby. Yeah, she does then fades about 1/2 mile later. Again, we just keep pace and roll by with a smile.
This is one of the videos I made of "one of those riders". We passed him and his
wife (SO). He felt it was so important to keep up and pass us that he dropped
her far behind. Then he sprints around. Like most times, we keep pace then he
fades only to suck wheel again. Then the dude bumps out our friend.
