As we thought it would be...but that said, I didn't realize just HOW much better he was than the field. Only Martinez seems to be able to hang with him at this point, and only just.

This must have been how it was when Merckx was in full song.

What's crazy to realize is that no matter how good Pog looks now in the Giro, he was humbled twice in the Tour by Vingegaard.

Skeletor is the reason why Teddy is so popular nowadays. Two TdF defeats and the famous "I'm gone, I'm dead" did wonders. He was nowhere near as popular in 2021 for example. If the Dane is not ready this year then Pogi's popularity may take a dive after his Tour win.

While finally more than 4 fans along the roadside will cheer for Skeletor at the Tour next year.
 
Thought Jesus that a bit risqué isn't it when he did the celebration but then remembered he would've been 6 and likely never saw it, felt old.

Another stage where he put the cruise control. He wasn't even forcing in the last 500m
Are you still worried he’s done too much to recover for the TdF? I guess he will also aim to win the Grappa stage.

It was predicted by many that the weak competition makes the double more likely. Now we have shortened stages in which was already a less demanding Giro parcours. At this point I’d say Pogacar is on track. But it will still be a stretch to see him destroy the likes of a fresh Roglic at the TdF but we live in hope ;)
