Of course there are more points for 1st but if he went down or wadded it up then he is moving backwards. I guess RV didn't feel comfortable riding faster than James' pace.
To me its seems all the riders are riding more conservatively this year, but after last years crash fest, its too be expected.
Was RV ever in a position to make a pass on Stewart?
