Read somewhere that he had turned off the iritrack because he thought it was causing issues with the bike electrically.

As I read that scenario, ASO didn't think that was kosher, so he got no credit (read: penalties) for the missed wp's on that stage.

It was just some raw humor, didn't mean to ruffle your feathers. As far as the rest of what you said it's pretty obvious, but thanks for the tutorial.

I often think about that.
To still be able to judge correct pace under those riding conditions, mental and physical strains, speed, stress ...And without a single reference point. Alone in the desert for miles and miles ... Wow.
