And Ayuso is 1 year younger than Pog in 2019. That being said, Pog's Vuelta that year will be tough to beat for Ayuso (no matter, this year or next).His 2022 so far is comparable to Pogi's 2019. The difference being he has yet to take his first victory. Pogi in 2019 won a stage and GC in Algarve and then later in May he won Tour of California. It'll be difficult for Ayuso to match that, because there's no more WT stage races as weak in terms of participants as Tour of California was back then. Maybe his best bet in the near future is Tour de Romandie without Pogi and Rogla on the startlist. Even if he doesn't take a win in the process and he just confirms what good he's done in Catalunya with a solid top 10 (even better a top5) in both Itzulia and Romandie, it'll all be comparable to Pogi's pre Vuelta performances in 2019 IMO.
