Pogacar with ‘tired head’ in Clasica San Sebastián: ‘Strong team, however, gives motivation’

Unlike his Tour rivals Jonas Vingegaard, Geraint Thomas and Wout van Aert, Tadej Pogacar will participate in the Clasica San Sebastian. The young Slovenian will ride his last one-day race in Spain, before giving himself some rest after the Tour de France.

“I feel good and happy to be here,” Pogacar said on Friday The last news, after exploring the trail. ‘I hope for a good day. Have I been sitting next to the bike all week? No, that was just one day, during the second stage of the Tour de France Femmes. Once at home I did the normal things and trained quietly. Thursday I added some intensity and Friday was the exploration.’

Still, it remains to be seen how Pogacar came out of the Tour de France. He normally recovers well, but the Tour was grueling. ‘I’m going to give everything. I’ll probably have recovered a bit from the Tour, but it’s only after the Clasica that I’ll take the time to fully recover and look at the last part of this season. I don’t really have tired legs, but I do have a tired head. However, we have a strong team here and that gives me motivation to show the best of myself.’

Pogacar honored by words Evenepoel

Pogacar will not be bothered by Vingegaard in the Clasica, but with Remco Evenepoel there is another great player. The Belgian from Quick Step-Alpha Vinyl suggested at a press conference even if he’s keeping an eye on Pogacar. ‘I feel honored. Remco will be good anyway, he comes from altitude training. Although there are of course still challengers.’
