“Pogacar was better”
“The legs were good in the last kilometers, but I tried to take the breakaway this morning and it wasn’t that good, I couldn’t take the right shot”analyzed the 22-year-old Briton. “Afterwards I improved during the stage. Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) surprised me a bit because he left early. I had a good sprint but I missed the mark, and then Pogacar was better. Van Aert, he’s a little crazy, I don’t really know what to say about him, it’s rare to see that”.
Very cool to see @tompidcock up there battling at the finish of stage six in his debut Tour. He comes home fourth ðŸ’
