you would have held it and been in the mix at the end...
Potentially, had I been sent out in amongst the front.
There's no way of telling what would have happened, and I feel chances are [as frustrating as it is for Nathan] he probably wouldn't have had a great day regardless of actual leg (feel free to correct me though Nathan).
And furthermore I'm not convinced I would have been so clean nor fast enough fighting for podium on last leg, based on past experience.
But yeah, a good experience regardless and I think it would have been really tough to podium with any combination/order of runners with such fast and mistake-punishing courses.
