I think we All know how you feel......
How quickly people forget the 2014 Worlds. You all remember the Purito/Costa/Valverde whatever happened situation. It's not like this is the first time there have been questions about supporting trade team teammate vs national team teammate. Of course this like 2014 comes down to do you believe (2014 race) Valverde or (2020) Roglic? Only they know if they are telling you the full truth or not.
I think we have a more recent example where the converse (Of the situation at a world’s ) also happened: didn’t Roglic say after Pogacar’s breakaway on Stage 8 say something like, “it’s a Slovenian rider out in front, let someone else chase him”? And it cost him dearly!
