Other teams are so predictable and boring. Once you've shown dominance in the first week, others will follow suit and are happy with crumbs
A potential podium isn't crumbs, though. You can't realistically beat Pogacar in this race unless he retires – after that it's just normal to protect your position and try and get top five/podium. It's not like they're defending 7th

With that attitude I wonder why they even step on the bike. Pogacar could also do a 20km solo at Strade, and still win. Why take the risk? Because it's fun, it's cycling, and people remember it.
