As a hypothetical, if Pidcock abandons at the first rest day, does that make his selection for the Vuelta a mistake?

He sounded in the interview after the stage as though he thought the lack of power could be a one-time issue, but if he really does not have the legs right now, and what he said in the interview does not rule that out from my perspective, then abandoning after a week seems a real possibility.

Yes. Absolutely. That's not why he was brought here. There are a number of reasons why Ineos brought him here (Don't know the exact one(s)) and abandoning after week 1 is not one of them.
