The story has been that Pogacar is a level above previous champions like Froome and Contador. Yesterday, Quintana and GT put 2 minutes into Pogacar. Today, Pogacar and the new Pogacar, Vingegaard, finished in the same time as GT who, at his absolute peak, Tour-winning form, narrowly nipped Dumoulin and Froome at the line on the Alpe, despite them having already ridden the Giro. So...they're actually not a level above previous champions like Froome and Contador?
