Tadej Pogacar, the huge rant!

Tadej Pogacar took the news of his partner Urka Zigart’s non-selection for the Paris Olympic Games very badly.

Tadej Pogacar is an angry man. Once again. On Sunday, it was Jonas Vingegaard who was the object of his wrath, the Slovenian rider criticizing his visma rival for not taking over when the two men had broken away.

” I’ll remember it “he said on arrival, clearly intending to be threatening: “I think Vingegaard is afraid of me. If he wasn’t afraid of me, he would have taken over, especially since he had a teammate. They are afraid of me, they only think about my wheel and don’t think about Remco (Evenepoel) or Primoz (Roglic). I think that at Visma, they only looked at me and not enough at the others.”

“I’m really disgusted”

But on Monday, if Tadej Pogacar was upset, it was because of the announcement that his partner, Urka Zigart, had not been selected for the Paris Olympics. While the leader of UAE-Emirates was unsurprisingly selected among the four riders who will defend the colours of Slovenia on 3 August, the rider from the Jayco-Alula team was not selected, despite winning two national titles last June in the time trial and the road race.

“I am really disgusted. Urška is a two-time national champion and the best Slovenian rider on the World Tour, but she was not selected for the Games. I have no words.”he thus castigated on Instagram on the sidelines of the Tour de France, where he will once again wear the yellow jersey this Tuesday between Orléans and Saint-Amand-Montrond with still 33 seconds ahead of Remco Evenepoel.
