GUEST,DaveRo BS: How Do Bicycle Races Work? (32) RE: BS: How Do Bicycle Races Work? 13 May 15

I couldn't quite understand why a small group broke away every day, but then always seemed to get caught before the finish.
They don't always get caught. If the breakaway riders are way down the overall timings then the race leaders may let them have a stage win. But if the sprinters can make it a sprint finish they'll catch them. The peloton, if organised, can always catch a lone rider or small group.
