For a couple of reasons: Large bunch, matching jersey,s and pretty appalling group riding. They always seemed to be attacking each other and the back half of their bunch was forever disintegrating with shelled riders everywhere. Always struck me as a group one wouldn't want to join, rather than a group that might not want one to join them.

Agree. On a BBC ride that could have been 4 yrs back, they overtook me then slowed significantly, so I overtook them. Half their bunch then surged and overtook me again. I was then surrounded by them with no where to go and was told to get out of their bunch by the guy riding beside me. WTF.
Exact same thing happened to me too. There was a particularly rude and outspoken woman that took great delight in doing this. I told her to mind her manners...made no difference though.
