    Default Re: bunch sprint

    Context: "More often than not, HTC-Highroad ride for Cavendish, particularly when a race or a stage is likely to come down to a bunch sprint."

    What I got is that {a pack of racers reach the final, not only a few". Have I got it right?

    Thanks a lot.

    maiabulela.
    That's right. A bunch sprint occurs when a number of riders race towards the finish line as a pack or sizable group.
