Point is they are paid athletes and are out there to preform at the top of their game. Every race is just that a race and these guys should not be going out on the water to just make up the numbers. They go out every time to win it's in their nature. I guess the point is they were trying, they just did not win that time. Yes they might be the top team at the moment but always remember there is only one way to go when your on the top.
That's great to know since they are all about to do the A Class Worlds, That would be pretty irrelevant to them since it's got nothing to do with the AC so I'm sure they won't care about trying to win and will just dog it.
