Why not?
He just pace Kuss, and he stays in red. Roglic was more than a minute down on Kuss, he can't gain that in 2km, especially if he helps.
He said he prefer Kuss wins, why he didn't helped then?
Roglic didn't went after him, but Jonas did, twice. He didn't give him an inch. Why did he went then? Roglic wasn't a main threat to red jersey, but he was.
The answer is obvious. Not to all of us though...
Because Vinge just wanted to beat Roglic. Needed to assert dominance for leadership next year.

But Roglic not all the time, he didn't went after Vingegaard every time, he shipped time both on Tourmalet and Bejes because he rode according to team tactics.
Vinge, on the other hand, went every time after Roglic.
Roglic tried dropping Vinge twice with his two attacks and couldn’t. The only time he had a gap was on the stage when they took timing at the 2 kms to go.

More than likely could have dropped him on Xorret de Cati, though.

And perhaps stages 18 and 20... we will never know. It's bizarre how many stages were basically uncontested.

Think he also could have have put a few seconds into him on Javalambre. Rog basically towed Vingo to the line once he got back on.
