I'm riding the the vuelta a pais vasco time trial ( start with a 5km uphill, then downhill and 16km flat left, 26km in total ).
I noticed that alot of the guys in front of the time trial are guys who are weak in time-trialling.

Guys like dan martin, quintana, chaves, pozzovivo are all in top-10 in front of guys like dumoulin, zakarin, geraint thomas, kelderman. Only froome and nibali could be top.

These guys all go really fast on the uphill section ( logical, no problem ),giving them a advantage. But in the downhill/flat part, they barely lose time ( and even gain time on most of these guys ). So they all finish really high.
This is not logical, because guys like dumouling, thomas, kelderman are far superior time triallists. And looking on form, these guys are all pretty equel, so this cannot give major differences.

I'm guessing that pcm game takes on other stats in calculation on the flat-part of the time trial then only timetrial/flat.
Can anybody explain the calculation mechanics of the pcm game because this is absolutely not logical.

On the other side, like in most pcm games, the time-trial stats of the weaker GC riders are way to high.
Quintan, chaves, majka, bardet, aru all have low 70's time trialling, what really is way to high. These guys are always heavy in the loss on time-trialling and even considering the placement ( usually 30-50 position ), you have to think that half the peleton is taking a rest-day on a time-trial. Reality these guys should have like 68 max.

Yeah this year there seems to be a "hidden stat" that boosts the TT ability of AI in TTs when they are in a good GC position, the amount of times ive seen Quintana and Chaves win flat TTs this year is ridiculous!
