... But at 4:29, rider positions himself to the right of, but behind the car in front. Still in his own lane. This is correct technique, allowing you an escape route from someone behind you who won't stop in time, or just to avoid being caught between two cars in the event of a rear end crash up.
I agree.. in textbook theory.. I just personally didn't like the small distance to the vehicle in his lane .. another 1 to 2 ft back just makes avoiding the left handle bar impacting the vehicle a bit easier - just felt crowded in the video.. but maybe in real life it was a bigger spot .
