To the bolded, I agree with this. The third week will require reserves. It's going to be harder than anything they've ever tackled on a bicycle. Everyone is talking about this, it's known, so it's going to be about who has more in the tank over the course of the final stages, from Crans Montagna, to Tre Cime, to the last TT. It's going to be spectacular. The one who manages himself well and is the strongest shall win. I'd like to think having blown completely on, when was it, stage 16 of his first Giro, Remco has made a treasure of that lesson and carries the experience into the third week of this Giro, but we shall see. Although at the time he simply wasn't prepared well enough to go the distance of a full grand tour, but he must be warry that it doesn't happen again. Having said that I think Soudal anticipates Remco will have an advantage from the first two TTs going into the last week, but if he doesn't I think It would mean someone like Roglic was just too strong. In other words, if Remco isn't in pink going into week three, I'd rate his chances of overall victory in Roma significantly less. However, with Remco in pink after say stage 9, this means Soudal has to ride at the front for over half of the race to bring Remco in pink at Roma. Perhaps Jumbo in particular relishes this, knowing that Soudal isn't the super team that can just control the race over this third week, having had to already take over the reigns from stage 10 (if my hypothetical scenario is correct). And so, perhaps with common interests with say Ineos and Bora, will plan a third week Remco ambush, at which point Evenepoel would really need to show his stuff as they say. Will he have managed himself well enough to have the reserves to demonstrate his mettile when it truly counts? On the other hand, it's the same for Roglic and the others. It could be a real slugfest. No, this Giro might be one for the history books, if the third week plays out as dramatically as it's difficulty promises. Of course, I'd be happy if Remco simply crushes the race, but it's not a given by any means.
