Pogacar booked for the World Cup by destroying the record on the Col de la Madone

Tadej Pogacar wants to arrive at the World Championships in Glasgow in top form after complaining of fatigue in the final week of the Tour de Francewhere he ended up succumbing to Jonas Vingegaard in the Combloux time trial and Col de la Loze stage to Courchevel despite winning the penultimate stage to Le Markstein.

A Pogacar who, before being confirmed by Slovenia in the World Cup list, faced another challenge close to his home, in Monaco: getting the best time on the climb to the Col de la Madoneusual place of training of leading figures of the group.

‘Pogi’ completed the demanding climb this Saturday, from 9.7 kilometers at 7.1% in 23:53, improving by 30 seconds the record held so far by Australian Richie Porte, and completing the climb at an average of 24.5 km/h. A training which for many means a warning from Pogacar to the rest of his World Cup rivals to show that ‘Pogi”s best level is back before the World Cup in Glasgow.
