With who? The only sort of climber Bora has apart from Martinez is Aleotti. A strong break is likely to go up the road on Sella. Bora won't get even close to probably keeping the break under 5 mins to make UAE chase.

It depends on how on the limit Martínez currently is, only to defend their GC position or still relatively fresh. If there are some reserves left then Bora should in my opinion test Pogi in a MTF sprint. Properly. It looks like UAE and Ineos and Co. are prepared to make it happen. We'll see.

So he could theoretically get to the tie at 7 if the cards fall his way.
It’s wild that not only is Maertens on the list three times, but they are three consecutive GTs between July 1976 and May 1977.
DSM is doing a movistar.
Thay are doing what the have to do...to go for the stage and a good GC position.

Of course Pogacar can win any stage no bunch sprint he wants...or almost, he failesd 1st one. Burt you have to try it... The only way Pogacar fail is if the pace is always quite hard. and is as well the only way Bardet can do something. But nobody alredy ride againt Poggi,

Of course if they do this till the last climb is wrong. I think Bardet will attack at the prnultimate climb...if he fells fine,
