Strongly agree. Last week was the worst TNP in history. If someone
(Herc) goes off the front on the first lap, others (Ken) should not
chase. If the pace in the pack is too slow for you, go to the front
and lift the tempo. If that's not enough to bring the guy off the
front back, then let him ride solo.
