Stealing Watts

Everyone's heard about chemical and mechanical doping, but how about stealing watts from another racer? On Tucker a few weeks back I saw this move that I'd never seen before, and I found out that yes, you can still watts from another racer.

This sneaky tactic is simple - gently grab hold of the zipper on another rider's saddle bag and then allow them to give you a bit of a pull.

I think you're unlikely to see this in a race, though. First of all, no one races with a saddlebag. Secondly, if the racer isn't on your team you're likely to get a little talking to. But who knows, I could imagine someone grabbing the back of someone's seat, especially if they're an excellent bike handler and have long arms.
