Not sure what Van Aert was trying to achieve. A super fast flat day today is gonna hurt Vingegaard more than Pogacar before tomorrow
A stage win I think. I'm pretty sure this is planned since they want to maintain the yellow jersey but Jumbo is not capable of controlling the stage after yesterday team effort.
But I agree with you, Pogacar has more endurance than Vingegaard
Matthews is not a good breakaway rider, though. He also just said that he expects the new finish to be more selective, and better for him than last time (which wouldn't matter much if he is in the break, where he is quickest anyway). So I'd think they plan to work all day

BEX were never going to pace the peleton because Matthews will not win this stage from the peleton - It will be hard enough from a break.
