Tadej Pogacar: My legs were ok on the climbs


Tadej Pogacar hasn’t attacked in the first stage of the Tour de France, as many expected, but crossed the line in fourth place however, outsprinting riders like Mads Pedersen and Alex Aranburu.

“First day was super good, I tested the legs a little bit on the climbs with quite a good pace and they were ok, even with the heat”, said the Giro d’Italia winner.

“In the end I tried to sprint also, I saw a opening and I almost beat two of the fastest guys in this race, Pedersen and Van Aert, but I was not lucky in the final: chapeau to the winner! Bardet and Van den Broek went with a very good pace and they deserved the victory.”

Stage 2 will start from Cesenatico and will end in Bologna, 199 km with two passages on the San Luca hill.
