and the other rider.
After 1 km, the rider caught up shall ride at least 25 m away from the other.
Just trying to understand this rule- does the lateral gap mean I can not get within 2 meters of the rider when passing? Is this distance measured behind or beside the rider I am passing?? Option 1 - I'm just wondering if I'm legally allowed to ride up into the riders slipstream(getting as close as maybe 1 meter or 1.5 meters from his backwheel ) and then move around him to pass him without getting a violation?
OPTION 2- Or is the 2 meter lateral gap essentially a 2 meter bubble floating around the rider I am passing and I can never enter this bubble without breaking the rules?
Can anyone please advise?
