I struggle to understand how WvA towing back Roglic is a preferential compared to trying to launch Vingegard downhill.
I still cannot believe why Vingegaard didnt try. That was literally the only point with Wout?
Yes it is. 10 km is enough for Van Aert.1:10 from Pog to Rog. That gap isn't getting bridged to the YJ group even with the green jersey pulling.
There is really not much he can do vs Pogacar at this point so why not help the other GC guy even if its a longshot
Physics dictates both Rog and WvA will get dropped on the Granon.Learn physics.
He tried too early maybe, you can't keep going in the red when another climb is waiting
Why in world should he pull Pogi for even a second?
Well, if you see them riding on this stretch, it's perfect for attacks.Because there's no way Vingegaard is going to drop Pogacar downhill even with WVA launching him.
It's not all about Pogacar for Jumbo. There is Mas, Vlasov and several others who could potentially threaten Vingegaard's second place. The chance of that is bigger than the chance of Roglic becoming a danger for Pogacar.
All that fairytales about Jumbo when the big tactical error now is to actually send WvA back to Roglic instead of fully supporting Vingegaard who even slightly gapped Pogacar on Telegraphe.
