I understand what you're saying but it's clearly TJV and Roglic have unfinished business at the Tour. At the same time Wout is one of the biggest stars in cycling and very important for the sponsors. Rog vs Pog is the most anticipated duel in 2022, it's bigger than WvA vs MVDP after Wout started to lose his punch. I hope Wout doesn't go for green next year but we will see.I think he should focus on Giro - Vuelta double next year. Tour has become Pogačar's playground with 100% UAE team support and it will stay that way as long as he races there.
But Jumbo Visma will not let that happen. The will go on Tour every year with mediocre support for Roglič (and rest for Wout) and Roglič will have to fight uphill as hell and settle for Vuelta at the end.
I can't say i'm happy with that. I know Wout is great but he's no TdF (or any other GT) winner. And if JV is really serious about winning it, they should go 100% in with the best (including Wout). Even then, they fight UAE with alien Pogačar and Ineos bots.
Giro-Vuelta is great but I'm not sure it does that much to Roglic's legacy. An epic battle with Pog at the Tour will be more remembered than an snoozefest Giro like Bernal's win. Someone mentioned Senna in this thread, Senna is remembered for his epic battles with Prost, Piquet and he will always be an ATG despite having only 3 Championships. Lemond-Fignon are both mostly remembered for that epic fight in 89 even though both won TdF multiple times.
I think Roglic is gonna go for Giro-Vuelta in 3 years from now, when probably there will be too many contenders and he won't be at his peak anymore.
I think it would be smarter for Pog to go for Giro-Vuelta than Rog. Getting that record all-time for the youngest winner of all 3 GTs is huge and it's more impressive if he does it next year not in 2023-2024. Pog has nothing to prove, he already beat Roglic and was dominant this year. It would also be probably a dream scenario for Slovenians with all 3 GTs won and Rog getting his TdF win. But knowing UAE he will still go for Tour, no way they are giving him so much money only to not go for TdF.
