So another finale from a small group. Poga didn't even try hard to drop them knowing he would easily outplay them at the finish. This time a longer sprint, no climber except Roglic has a chance against finishing explosivity of the guy. Just three GTs in his career and 9 stage victories, most likely 2 TdF wins and one Vuelta podium. Most accomplished youngster in decades, a legend in the making.
Considering his domestique is Pogacars closest challenger, I think he would. Completely different race with a fit Roglic, and Thomas would also have up there so Ineos can actually try the two leader strategy and ask Pogacar to chase.
Ineos rode a stupid race. Once Uran was dropped rather early on the Tourmalet they should have dat up and send Kwait, Castro or Tao on the attack to go for a potential stage win.
Kuss is so used to pacing for a Slowenian with a great kick that he probably didn't even notice the difference...
Mas was good today, if Pogi didn't close that gap with his monster attack he really could have won the stage. To me it looked like neither Vingegaard nor Carapaz had that much left in the tank.
