More on Pacelines
You go where you look. If you find your paceline getting bunched up, or braking in a hurry -- beware! Don't stare at the back wheel in front of you. Look for an opening, or look at the shoulder of the road.
You go where you look and if you focus on the issue, you become one with the issue. Look for a solution. If you run off the road, don't panic as you can probably come back on, or come to a stop -- either of which needs to be done SMOOTHLY.
Team Captains come in all shapes, sizes, and general temperament. Please keep that in mind. :-)
