The ratio of group 2 to group 1 is likely in excess of 10:1.

I assume that clip is after the finish. Otherwise it looks like Evans gifted the win. I didn't see the race, so I don't know where/when that took place.
Maybe Cadel was just afraid to sprint, fearing there might be an Orica-GreenEdge bus parked under the finish banner.

As a Stages user, I'm stoked to see the partnership with Sky. I had a RED Quarq and Stages simultaneously and sold the Quarq. As far as I'm concerned, there's no reason to spend more than what a Stages costs for most amateur power needs.

Yeah its not a new design, and different from the skinsuit. It is also a case of the flash making it look more see through. Plenty other teams have the same designs on the go
