Probably a name among the 20 DNF that day.
Unfortunately, images do not render the actual conditions very well, crazy winds gusting up to 80kmh.
In fact, that day, based on the conditions, I instructed my team to ride their bike in a upward position, using their back as a sail in tail wind. The cycling path was a 4k loop on a Formula One race track, and there was a 1.1k stretch where they would get tail wind.
It's one of ours that won the race overall, using this strategy. He was descending the stretch at 50kmh, no effort, in an *anti-aero* position, using his back as if he was sailing LOL
