Pogacar: “This Tour will be very tight”


the slovenian Tadej Pogacarsecond in the Tour de France, lamented that photographers’ motorcycles prevented him from launching a final attack at the top of the Joux Plane, the last port of the day, with a bonus, but he assured that the final victory “will be very tight”.

“It’s hard to leave Jonas, the Jumbos are doing a good job. In the end I tried, but Jonas was strong and I couldn’t leave him. I tried again in the last section of the last port but it could not“, pointed out the Slovenian from the UAE.

Regarding the motorcycle incident, Pogacar assured: “I tried to attack one last time, with the last strength I had left, but the bikes couldn’t be removed. It’s like throwing a cartridge into the water. Right, we’ll try again.”

The Slovenian rider admitted that he was looking for the 8-second bonus at the top of the Joux Plane and that his aim was also to win the stage to add more seconds. But he didn’t get one thing or another, as Vingegaard overtook him at the top and the Spaniard Carlos Rodríguez at the finish line.

“It has been a good day, the bonuses would have been formidable, or winning the stage, but if I take stock, I felt good, there are positive things. The team has become very strong. We can be confident for the future, I am convinced that this Tour will be very tight“, he commented.

“After everything we’ve been through We are only a few seconds apart and I think it will continue like this for the next few days.“, he guessed.
