Plum tuckered out

It may well be that he had given all he had defending the yellow jersey and the final TT was just a bridge to far. Or maybe it was the famous jour sans (day without). We'll probably never know, and maybe he won't etiher.

"attacks would have extracted a toll on Roglic, too."

Maybe even the same as on Pog. But I am now thinking those Pog attempts to go up the road that got answered were thermometer readings...

The kid is either way smart, or knew how to listen to his earpiece, or both.
