Be a shame forValverde to slip now. Hope it doesn't happen. But it seems there is still some life in Astana and Lopez is sensing an opportunity. Pogacar also has done extremely well up till now. Quintana has looked ordinary since the TT.
I mean, obviously he was riding his own race. But he seemed to have been intentionally avoiding harming Roglic's chances. He refused to pull for a few minutes and only when to the front when Roglic was back on the wheel. I have no issues with him doing whatever he wants anyway but even more, given that he's twenty, not pulling and going for white is a legit strategy. But it did seem a little weird that he did come up to pull once Rorglic rejoined, given that the objective for doing so seemed to be going for a podium.
