My statment was reply to the statement that Bora was surprised hove hard the Sunweb riders attacked. The Sagan off limit attack in that part was guaranteed.if alaphilipe had the luxury of saving the attack to the last cat 2 climb, I can't think of 5 riders that could, and if, then would want to keep up with him . Definitely Hirschi, maybe van Aert and maybe one or two guys a can't think of now but are there, and that would be it. There's 15 points for 6th place. Quite enough and actually it could mean, that sagan is back in green by the end of stage 14. And in the end, the competition for green me be decided by less then ten points.
You are probably right but Bora would have this chance also without the killing themselves conttolling the race todoy. I am afraid tommorow there will be nobody to help Sagan to get all intermediate points.
But as I said, everybody is general after the fight.
