Agree 100 percent.The move sure was entertaining if not particularly smart. It would surely be a lot smarter if he did that on a MTF but in that case, it wouldn't really be a surprise attack, would it?
Besides, there's a deeper point a dominating rider makes when he does an unneccessary and very risky attack. It's as if he's trying to show his opposition that they better not even think about bullying him because he is prepared to put everything on the line if neccessary. Not to mention the PR benefits. I'm far from being a Froome fan but that descent from Peyresourde 2016 sure made me reconsider how I rate his qualities...
I guess the bottom line is - you don't become a cycling legend just by calculating and maximising your opportunities. It's that kind of stuff that will make us fans remember Primoz togehter with Nibali, Contador, Pantani with a smile on our face long after they have finished their careers... I realize Primoz has some work to do to be mentioned together with these names, but he is on his way I think..
I fear, however, that so long as Pogacar is racing, Primoz may never win the Tour. I picked him this year as my favorite but even in top form I have to admit he couldn't have beaten his countryman. I'd like to see him notch a Giro, at least. I worry that, despite what he says, the pressure of the Tour might be self-defeating.
