Vaya vaya vaya, que cambio de ritmo.
Haha nah, I might now always appreciate his style off the bike, but I can’t find anything to fault him for on the bike. Stylistically, I prefer riders like Vingegaard, Remco, or Pogi (I was a huge Contador fan), but for some reason I became a Roglic fan when Pogi stole that Tour in 2020, and it is what it is.

Stole? I don’t think Pogi stole the 2020 TdF. He was never far away from Roglic that Tour and delivered when it mattered. Like Sastre 2008 or Lemond 1989.
I’m not saying he didn’t deserve it or did anything wrong, but Roglic underestimated him and if he’d properly assessed the threat level and/or not fallen short in that ITT, he should have won. A lot of ifs. Again, I’m not trying to not give credit to Pogi. Big fan of his.

Yeah, funny how a sample size of one could be wrong. Even Pogi was spewing this narrative in a resent interview.
I didn’t see what pog said. And I’m not sure what this means. And while Vingo laid a beating on Ayuso yesterday, it’s still one stage of a stage race. No reason why Vingo can’t put on a display at a one day race on the calendar. It’s a worthy challenge!

I'm saying he did one year (22) with just about nothing but the TdF going on, that is what people have as reference, when saying he only peaks/focus on the tour.

One day races could be coming in the future, he has said as much. He was one big pull on Angliru away from wining a GT double last year, with 17 overall wins. I have very little respect for the narrative that he only has focus on the tour.

You may have little respect for it. But this has not been untrue. He is and should be very satisfied with the resulted goal

This is one of the most clear examples how the perception of fans and media can create a narrative that is just patently untrue, but that everyone believes. I can understand Pogacar tries to hold on to that narrative as well, after all it's good for his image and it's also a good excuse for why he failed two Tours in a row, but it's not true. Vingegaard is not a Tour-only rider, never has been, and probably never will be.
 
I hope he won't go farming in Dauphiné, better to keep more in the tank for the rest of the season.
It's brilliant, now isn't it? Pog showed allarming strength in his lean and mean version 2 upgrade with Milan at Strade, the opening of a long build-up for the Big Ones; and then Vingegaard responds in kind. All I can say is buckle up for one hell of a ride this season and I wouldn't want to be an adversary of theirs.
 
Finally. That wasn’t so hard was it?

I did it just because I like winning. The team also pulled the whole day today, and once again, it's super nice to pay them off today, and also for me, it's nice that I'm able to to win again today. And two stage wins is a perfect week for us, and now we just have to keep the jersey tomorrow until the end," he said.
Did you hear the question? He nods along and moderates what the interviewer went fishing for.
