Benotti - I think you have it exactly.  I am not sure quite where the idea came from that either Cooke or Armistead could get a win from, formed, but it certainly was not rational based on records of rides up to the World Champs or since and where was the well drilled lead out train.  The horsepower was there to do it, but the rider around who it all hinged was Pooley and she didn't show.  And to be frank, Armistead looked either not to know what she had to do or was deliberately riding for the "I wuz robbed" tale.  A far easier option rather than put yourself right in the mix and then see how you don't stack up to the hype.  Straight after the race she came out with some tale of being trapped behind a fallen rider and then later sang another tune.
