Will Roglic win a tour again? “Don’t cross it off, the race started late” | Cycling

Last year we saw Denmark’s Jonas Weinggaard for the first time, who took the torch from the Slovenian hard due to Primoz Roglic’s loss, leading to a second place finish.

As a result, Jumbo-Visma started this year with two leaders on the tour. Yesterday it was obvious that Vingegaard was a very strong class for Roglic. Furthermore, the latter had already lost a lot of time after falling into the cobblestone stage.

At Vive le Vélo, Karl Vannieuwkerke said it looks like Roglic will never win the Tour again.

“It seems to be,” says Jonas Herrick, cycling journalist. “I think he can accept that. Today it was clear that Vingegaard really was the best.”

Sep Vanmarcke took a different view. “It’s too early to write off someone after two failed rounds,” the Israel-Premier Tech team rider analyzed.

“Roglic has already won a lot. I also know him as a former teammate, known as a ‘fighter’. Please note that he started cycling at the age of 27. I think he should definitely be given the benefit of the doubt,” Vanmark concludes of the 32-year-old Slovenian.

“Cadell Evans also won the tour at the age of 34 when everyone crossed it off, but the right scenario should be to put all the pieces of the puzzle together,” Herrick adds.
