I think Wout would die inside to have to watch a teammate win this race due to tactical reasons. I guess that doesn’t change anything, but the likelihood of a different Jumbo rider than him winning doesn’t seem realistic, even with their numbers game.

I went for Pog probably more in heart than head. But maybe this will finally be the time he can break free.
How is that surprising, Pogacar is in a great form and he tore the race to shredz last year. What Pogacar did in the KWaremont is almost unprecedented. All it takes is 0.5% more, maybe vanderpoel miss a bidon or get a puncture and has to put some energy to get back to the group , and the elastic on Kwaremont snap. And pogacar won.

I don't think Belgian pozzato has ever looked like winning this race by contrast? Tomorrow is the best chance he has, but in e3 he was completely inferior to vandepoel and pogacar strengthwise, they just rode badly from a tactical perspective and this helped WVA who did a slightly more clever race

Lol, Van Aert was much closer to the win in 2020 than Pogacar in 2022 :rolleyes:
Laporte. Because I want to watch the world burn.

Just kidding, I think Pogacar will finally get this. I'd like for Van Aert to win but I just think Pog is on a bit of a mission to get this monument. He will have learned a lot from last year as well.
