Ok, I can't find the overhead view video, but I have read in a Norwegian-language analysis that #jumbo Groenewegen probably overheated a little bit today and left his sprint train with a long way to go, trying to surf wheels on his own.

the pace on the climb was pretty high and he just barely made it over there in the first group. So I guess going a bit too deep would be the most logical explanation for his result today (and in consequence, also for Kristoff's good one, as he likes the stages to be ridden a bit harder).

And Jumbo had yellow for a couple of days, so a lot of work to do, one lead out man who probably barely got any sleep (Teunissen) and another one, who has never ridden a single race together with the sprinter before (van Aert)
