Vingegaard is going to meet the best Pogacar in the Tour

Maybe a few years ago yes, but not today, not in this cycling, if Jonas Vingegaard announces his presence in the Tour de France it cannot be for anything other than trying to win it.

He hasn’t had the best path, it’s obvious, but he has had a pathsomething that cannot be ignored either and these people, used to putting terrible things in themselves, see it this way.

I am happy for the Italian friends who are giving their lives to organizing the start of the Tour, from Florence to the Piedmont Alps, passing through Rimini, Bologna and Turin.

Vingegaard’s fall in Itzulia caught us in Italy, in the area of ​​the arrival of the first and second stages, the Emilia Romagna, and the sadness that invaded the promoters of Vingegaard’s possible withdrawal from the Tour hit them like a lead.

The Dane has been out of the spotlight for almost three months, he is going to arrive in Florence with very few days of competition, O Gran Camiño, Tirreno and the three full days he covered in Itzulia,

Nothing else.

The rumors, the secrecy, the sobriety that have always characterized the rider and his team this time have made the miracle of seeing Jonas Vingegaard at the start of the Tour,

He is not going to do it out of commitment or because he is there, he is going to do it with the conviction that the third is possible.

Big words, because in this Tour, the one in the tiebreaker, any of the two bogeymen can put themselves up to par with people like Greg Lemond.

Tres Tours is thick history of this sport.

The necessary answer that the best Pogacar we have ever seen, the one from the Giro and almost this entire season, needed comes from the only cyclist who has managed to bring him under control.

A fit Vingegaard ensures equality and excitement for three weeks and the certainty that if he emerges alive from the first stages, they can be memorable, he will be a very tough rival for the Slovenian.

These are two editions in which Pogacar has fit the bill.

At the same time in the UAE they know that any victory for Pogacar in this Tour without his friend Jonas at the start would have been an asteriskas much as we like Roglic, Remco and company.

They are at another level.

But they will all be there, the great bogeymen of a fantastic era of cycling and that, as I said yesterday, is brutal news, great for cycling, because it is also the Tour de France, that time of the year when the Lovers of this sport can take a step forward and brag about the event.
