Is August 2022 the month of change of the generations? The older ones, Rog, Pog, Bernal, disappear, whereas the young guns, Ayuso, Uijtdebroeks, Remco, take over…

Tadej is and stays a champion, and his focus now might switch to a „Battle Royale“ versus Primoz, in Giro 2023. Looking forward to that! :)

Old geezer Pog should clearly retire

Pure comedic. gold. 3 months ago Pogi was considered unbeatable by many. the only one I could see switching to the Giro is Roglic. If everyone stays healthy there will be a Pog vs. Vinge rematch possibly with Remco and Bernal also in contention but that's a long way.

People keep wanting to throw Bernal in there but I just don't see him having the level.
 
This is the first race back after his break and he was clearly tired after the Tour so it does not say that much in my opinion.

This is also not exactly a race which suits him best either. Just think UAE uses this race to get him into the rhythm for Canada and the worlds.

There is a rumour going on he had covid (like Majka, the not that contagious version) during the last week of the tour.

He was not on that level before the crash, can't see him get better after it. His weakness was ITT and with all the screws and plates in his body it will be even worse now. I mean just the fact he can ride in WT race is some kind of miracle.
 
I am still kinda bumped that he is not doing the Vuelta this year. I belive that 95% of Pogi would make this Vuelta a lot more interesting ;)
How about 50%? Did u see Teddy in San Sebastian or Bretagne? In the former he was dead tired and in the latter out of form. Post GT recovery is not his strong side, especially after that epic battle with the fishy guy, who himself still has exhaustion problems.

I know. It was almost painful to watch ;)

What do you think about his chances for WC and Lombardia? Last year it seems he also had a weak period around August then was strong for Sep/Oct
