And as i explained 3 posts ago, that is only smart, to not go in the red until the very end. I agree he usually has a good sprint, but that is exactly because unlike his rivals, he hasn't wasted as much energy by the time they reach the finish. Looking back at the way he climbs even when he was riding for Evenepoel in 2020, it has always been steady climbing, pacing himself, coming back in his own pace, never responding to immediate attacks... If he did respond to attacks and accelerations, he would lose more time overall, and he would not win a sprint that easily when it came to it.Actually disagree he is not a punchy climber... Just watch some stage finishes on his first Giro and last year Poland. I think he just developed an extreme fear/obsession of not going over the red line unless he sees the finish line.
