Ok, I'm a bit new to the tdf. I'm trying to figure out what determines when people should sit up and wait for someone envolved in a crash.
On stage 2, everyone sat up which allowed Andy a GC contender (some 4 minutes back) to regroup.
On stage 3, Lance (a GC contender) crashes. Andy and FC put the hammer down to gain time.
I didn't hear any of the riders complain so I assume no unwritten rule was being broken. Can someone explain the difference between these two stages to me?
