I did TdZ stage 6 catch-up last night and due to rushing home from work didn’t have chance to do a warm up.
I therefore took the first lap pretty steadily and tried to speed up a bit on the second. There were only about 72 riders doing the event and I was so far back that I thought I’d just have a crack at the sprints (Richmond, so there are 2) instead of trying to make up ground.
On the first sprint I could see that a rider about 1 minute up the road had the green jersey. When I topped the time sheet I thought that I’d get it, but nothing happened.
About 5-6 minutes later you get to the second, again I could see that the same rider had picked that up as he now had two jerseys next to his name (1x green & 1x rust coloured which I assumed was for the second sprint). Again I topped the time sheet, but nothing changed with the jerseys.
Did I do something wrong? Have I got completely the wrong end of the stick re how these things work?
