Ofcourse but the last chip just fell 100%. Mythical Roglic was atleast 10% chance
Not really, after that crash, the main unknown factor was always how much doing the Giro beforehand influences Pogs performance levels at the Tour. He hasn't done two GT-s in a single seaon before, let alone back-to-back ones and regardless of the apparent ease with which he won the Giro, Roglic' relative weakness today didn't change anything about that.

Roglic wins it! This must be is biggest bittersweat win in his career. He won Dauphiné however he showed he can't win the Tour unless something magical happens.
If you mean by magical that Pogi can crash or pop then yes. No reason to be dramatic. the form is not where it should be but still the third favourite behind Pogi and Vinge. Also Remco with a fine performance. he is still in the mix and will get better as will Roglic until the Tour.

Don't know what Jorgensen can do in a GT. Could be that he was peeking for the Dauphine. But they shoudl keep him around as a 2nd leader at the Tour in the first week.

Look if Rogla dropped Angrilu performances 4-5 times in the TDF, Teddy would have a race. Won’t happen Ofcourse
