I get why he needs to do it, but the rules should be changed so he shouldn't.

Well, Pogacar absolutely doesn't need to be in the front in the last 2 km of a stage like this. He has 2'40 for 2nd place, the maximum he stands to lose with a split is 20 or 30 seconds.

He was there just for fun and giggles and someday it will end bad for his overall aspirations because he is somewhere he shouldnt' be, fighting for something that he has zero necessity and zero reward.

Teddy is getting bored in week #2 and needs some rush of adrenaline.

I think Pogi and G are mostly there for risk management reasons (crashes)..

Yeah he narrowly missed that crash in front of him today. Definitely no need for him to be at the front with the sprinters, he wasn't even leading out Molano or anything.
