Mates? We're strangers

I was about 5 miles from the end of the SFA sportive, in a group with a couple of guys from the same large cycling club. One of them clearly thought we were soft tapping and put the hammer down. I kept him in sight but the other guy got dropped. Chatting at the finish he came over to wish me well. I said
'I just saw your Mate go and tried to stay with him.'
'Oh him, I don't know him.'
It struck me that there are benefits in being part of a big club but when you don't even know your team mates in an event seems a bit sad.
