Teams & Riders Team Jumbo-Visma

Now I had a closer look at next week‘s stages… Tuesday and Wednesday (Arenberg) should suit Jumbo.

This will be Roglic-Vingegaard-Benoot-Laporte-WVA-van Hooydonck vs Pogacar. I hope Jumbo takes some advantage from this.

Thursday and Friday will suit Pogi. On Friday, however, Jonas could be Primoz‘ lead out man, so Primoz could be able to beat Pogi on PDBF.

Today‘s the day! I think today, at breakfast and in the bus, all riders and staff stand tall and with broad shoulders: „Today we will tear apart Team UAE!“… ;)

If he wasn‘t the likeable guy he is, I would hope that Pogi today would stand at the side of the road somewhere in Northern France, crying like MAL in last year’s Vuelta.

Today I hope for a JV 1-2-3, Roglic in front of Vingegaard and van Aert.

That didn´t age well...
 
Vingegård was bailed out by Van Aert and by Laporte to a lesser degree but I still think it was a bad day overall for them as Roglič lost almost any chance of winning the Tour, though the podium is still a possibility. In hindsight they should have waited for Roglič when he was just behind them
 
The thing is i could be OK with them going for yellow and green. Spending energy on partial goals. Giving opportunities to all. All that in the end is acceptable if done right. What i find hard to accept is them knowing against who they are up to. Knowing their strengths and weaknesses in much detail. Sending Roglič to races such as Denain. Him going in an attack and breakaway on such races. On stage 4 displaying team strength to the finest. And then on one of the most crucial stages of this Tour edition. After Pogačar dropping his teammates and isolating himself. To more or less put Laporte in front. To not enforce their dominance as a team. To not keep their GC captains in front. Resulting in a crash. To role around van Aert on the asphalt in the back. To after wasting much more energy to chase Pogačar and still lose time. To make up around 50s and still to lose 10s. And with Roglič to lose 2 minutes. While cyclist like van der Poel out of the picture ...

You never planned to be aggressive on this stage and Pogi needed to show you how it should be done.
 
This doesn't make any sense whatsoever. It was horrendous luck. How is passive tactics to blame for anything that happened?
This wasn't luck. They blew it and yes i am disappoint. But in the end it's just. For this stage it was known up front. For a year now. Attack or be attacked. No other option available. Instead of doing that they rather role van Aert at the back of the peloton on the asphalt.

I'm not sure if it matters.

Roglic crashed pretty hard so his form probably took a hit as well.

Hopefully he's sore but even "re-locating" your should will hurt the next day. He looked to be riding OK after. What really sucks is JV blew by him and were over a minute away before realizing what had happened. At that point there really is no choice but to keep Vingo closer to Pogacar. If I were DS I'd let Primoz free lance on the climbs to force a Pogi response. If Jonas couldn't hang with him that pretty much sums up the Tour.
