Sorry but that is dreadful advice. If you are quicker than the guy in front you should be able to hang back if neccessary then get straight past him at an appropriate point, not "sit back there and make the guy nervous" that is the behaviour of a person who thinks they are quick, but actually they're not. Not to mention it's ungentlemanly and unsportsman-like.
