It appeared that they could benefit from some cycling theory about cadence, and gearing. I think they're soooo close. I would imagine, though every ounce is precious.
yes 10% reduction in RPM will get them more stable and less bouncy, then again maybe they are approach it as a "Anaerobic" exercise, who knows I'm sure they have very smart people around.
