  2. Three in the afternoon 58. Tadij Bojacar: “I am not the only leader.” Tadej Pogacar will receive a shirt number for the Walloon stock on Wednesday for the third time. Last year, the Tour de France winner finished ninth in Huy. He smiled in the afternoon: “I love one-day races.” “I like the classics in Italy and in Wallonia. It’s completely different to the theatrical race, but it’s good to break the rhythm. I hope I can win such a race one day someday.” Bogacar and his Emirati team can play with last year’s winner Mark Hershey and Davide Formolo. “I’m definitely not the only leader. Our team is strong. That way Mark is improving in race after race.” In any case, Huy Wall no longer held any secrets for the Slovenes. “The finish is unique. This is one of the hardest finishes I know of. The climb is difficult and you have to spend some time well.” “I don’t know if this is a feature that I really pushed here and Primuz (Roglic) is not yet. We’ll drive over the wall 3 times tomorrow, but a little bit of experience might not hurt.” .

    Falling down with Jungels and Vansevenant, among others, in the Amstel Gold Race

  5. 5 pm 40. Spring Classics by Bob Jungles are already over. Bob Jungles ignored the Flemish races in recent weeks to be on top of the hill classics, but the Luxembourgish had to pass. Jungels, who has been searching for his best legs for some time due to physical discomfort, fell into the Amstel Gold Race on Sunday. A training flight on Monday clarified that the acquisition of AG2R-Citron has yet to be restored. It fits with Flèche Wallonne and Liège-Bastogne-Liège. “I am very disappointed that these are two of the most important dates for me. But it is better to be careful now than to race,” said the 2018 Liege champion.
  6. 1:00 pm 37. Two Belgian lieutenants for Alaphilippe. Julian Alaphilippe is the leader of the Deceuninck-Quick Step in the Walloon Arrow on Wednesday. The two-time French world champion has beaten Wol Hoy, in 2018 and 2019. Alavelippi will support two Belgian bosses with Dries Divinens and Maury Vincentant, who remain influenced in the Amstel Gold Race on Sunday. The Deceuninck-Quick Step was completed by Italian Mattia Cattaneo, Czech Josef Cerny, Britain’s James Knox and Dane Mikkel Honoré. “There are a lot of strong riders in the beginning, so it won’t be easy,” says Athletic Director Claes Lodewick. “As in the past, it is possible that everything will be determined in the last climb of the Huey Wall. Although we must also be on the alert for previous attacks.” .
  7. 13 hours 36. We start with a very strong team. We have proven in the past that we can do well here. Julian has always been on top here and we all remember Morrie’s gorgeous debut last year. Klas Lodewick, Deceuninck-Quick Step Athletic Director.
