Little if any increase in rigidity to adress "rubber cow" syndrome and a larger unsupported triangle mounting the rear shocks is going to further amplify rubber cow effects.
Looks to me to be an exrecise in styling rather than engineering a rigid frame with improved handling.
Does it have a race history that says I've missed the point entirtely?
In the Netherlands guys with those frames win a lot of classic races. So they must be doing something right.
