(ANSA) – ROME, JUL 11 – “We are very careful, we hope to always remain safe from here to the end”. Tadej Pogacar, like all his colleagues still competing in the 109 / o Tour de France cycling, crosses his fingers and, after the Anticovid-19 swab to which he was subjected by the UCI health workers, relaunches the challenge.

Days of fire await him, due to high temperatures and because very tough routes are planned on the Alpine peaks, such as Passo Granon (Wednesday) and Alpe d’Huez (Thursday).

“Both stages are very hard – says the Slovenian -. The Granon is brutal and that day there will also be the Col du Galibier to climb, a very long and high altitude climb. However, I think that the Alpe d’Huez, preceded from Croix-de-Fer, is the queen stage “.

Pogacar will have to defend himself from Vingegaard, who is only 39 late “: the Dane has lost a lot with the bonuses, which the Slovenian rival managed to win. The gaps were not huge” Jonas is very strong, we will fight, but there are others riders not far in the standings – points out Pogacar -. The gaps are not huge enough to suggest only a duel between me and him “. (ANSA).
