Ineos has to ride at the tour like the Wolfpack yesterday in Harelbeke. That´s their only chance to beat Pogacar and Roglic.
It’s a lot harder to do in a 3 week race than a one day race or even week long stage race like Catalunya as it will need 3 or more riders to have good enough form to be with the final selection every GC relevant day and stay close enough for rival teams to have to care when they attack.

To be fair it’s their best shot if Pogacar and Roglic turn up in great shape as a strong steady train tempo will just play into the last 3km punchy attacks that the Slovenian DUP are so outstanding at.

As you said, the controlling train strategy from Ineos at the tour will not work. They have to use a different more creative approach at the tour this year, which is of course easier said then done.

I find it so weird to see how many fans there are. I guess in the summer when there were quite a lot of fans at the gt's it was the public naivety that the pandemic was over and you don't have to be overly careful anymore. But after what happened this fall and winter I really thought there wouldn't be any fans along the road this spring.

As the lockdowns approach half a dozen the chance that governments throw their hands in the air and go "lol whatever" approaches 1. We thousands of spectators at our football game vs Latvia yesterday. Yet meanwhile a bunch of them had to leave the game early cause of the curfew. Nothing makes any sense.
