Assuming the above then at some stage Barreda will make a mistake which would put Coma in the lead and that would be when Cyril could catch up.

The thing is looking back to 2009-2010-2011, Coma always started in the lead and then began to pull away from Despres. After rest day Coma would let Despres win stages and he would just tail him, refusing to let him get a big lead and forcing him to open the stage each time.

So really having Barreda gives Coma a small safety net to ride fast, just following Barreda's tracks as he opens the stage at lightning pace.
