The slower they climb Télégraphe, the faster they can pace Galibier without catching the break.
Catching the break on Galibier is already almost impossible at this point. So far this stage is being raced like a day where the GC riders wait for the final 3 kilometres of the MTF, when they turn out of the headwind, to do anything.The slower they climb Télégraphe, the faster they can pace Galibier without catching the break.
Roglič and Vinge attack Pogačar, winner bridges to Wout. Or Wout waits for them in the middle of the climb and all three attack Pog.
Problem is Pog is probably too strong and will cover all the attacks on his own.
I'm less concerned about Jumbo not pulling yet than I am about Van Aert working so much in the break. He is not looking like a rider who wants enough of a gap to get his lead over the Galibier but like a rider who wants enough of a gap to win the stage.They will definitely do something on Galibier. Never expected anything on Telegraphe
