2023 CALL FOR "CYCLE CITY" LABEL NOW OPEN

Tadej Pogacar: "I'm very happy with my performance"

"It has been a really good day. I enjoyed the course despite the rain. I clocked a very good time and I am in a great position in the GC to go into the first week. I went full gas from the start to the finish. The rain made the time trial a bit stressful, as these slippery conditions never help. Anyway, on the first corners I saw the conditions were not so bad, and from then on I took it corner by corner. I felt confident, without taking too many risks. I’m happy with my performance and super happy to be in the white jersey. This has been the first test of the Tour de France, not super long but still demanding. I find I have good legs. Tomorrow’s will be a stressful stage. You never know what is going to happen. I have a good team to support me and we will have to be very careful as it’s sure it will be a hard day."
