I've noticed you always do this thing. You list a number of riders who did worse than your favourite riders to try to convince yourself and the others, that they did well. I'm not saying you don't have other convincing arguments to backup your claim (i.e. 4 weeks after getting back from covid is a solid argument), you usually do. But using Kruijswijk, who nobody can remember the last time he climbed respectfully, Valverde, who probably had the worst performance at this race in this millennium, Sosa, who is basically a Simon Yates on roids as far as consistency goes, Skjelmose, who was involved in a crash two days ago and it's a good thing he is alive, and so on...you get the point...Using those riders as some kind of benchmark, when comparing their performances to your guy's performance really doesn't make your guy look better. IMO it's a strange way to assess riders' performances, that's all.Less than 4 weeks after getting back from his covid infection. Finishing well ahead of Ciccone, Sosa, Vanhoucke, Valverde, Skjelmose, Kruijswijk... after dropping early only losing 54 seconds. Not too bad.
