If vingegaard wasn't such a wheel sucker the race would be way more interesting
In all fairness Vingegaard had to wheelsuck to force Pogacar to put in a huge effort to keep the Jumbo helpers on distance. That's the logical consequence of the situation Jumbo has set up. So Vingegaard either gaps Pog on Granon or at least is fresher to win the stage in a 2 man sprint.

I've never witnessed though, that a team themselves kills the favorable situation it created before.

This better still works out, because otherwise it's a major face-palm.
