Tadej Pogacar still felt last Sunday’s road race in his legs. The Slovenian will be back in action on Friday for the world time trial championships. “We will see what happens,” Pogacar told the organization.
“I can still feel the road accelerating in my legs. So we’re trying to run it on the time trial bike, and we’ll see what comes next on Friday. What do I think of the track? Yeah… it’s very long,” Pogacar laughed after polling. It is also not very fast due to the slowness of the asphalt. It will be very difficult.”
Another favorite for the world title is Stefan Kong, who won gold with Switzerland on Tuesday in the mixed relay. Kung finished fifth in the road race. “But this is completely different,” Kong told the organization with a smile. “Back then there were probably 45 corners, now there are four corners and those are on a course of nearly 50 kilometers.”
Küng: “somewhat boring”
“The ending will hurt legs, that’s for sure. I especially like the second part. The first is rather boring because you have to sit constantly aerodynamically, with your head down. Besides, you also have to make sure you don’t go too fast,” concluded Kong, who He finished second in the World Time Championships last year, “It’s going to be tough.”
