Haha, if Thomas would have suddenly caught Pogacar we at least would have known their secret is in their drinks.You don't know what was inside that bidon.
To me it's puzzling what they're in but in 20 years I follow the sport I don't recall seeing anything so stupidly absurd as the Belgian Hulk today. After 17 all-out stages, attack on KM 0, multiple pulls and attemps to get in the breakaway, little sprint in the intermediate, pulling constantly on Aubisque and Spandelles, attack on top of Spandelles and than this effort to Hautacam. All this while appearing he was everywhere giving his max.
It seems they are into something very powerful and with quick response that maybe they can top up during races to provide extra boost.
And yes, indeed. We are discussing of Pogacar was too aggressive early on and tanked because of that. WvA just goes solo on half of the stages and no questions arise?
