Roglic joins the party

Just missing Cousin Roglic. And it’s already here. The three main contenders for the grand tours, Tadej Pogacar, Jonas Vingegaard and Remco Evenepoel, they had opened their win locker early, in February they had already started winning. As we have pointed out on other occasions, bib training ceased to exist a long time ago. But another leader with weight had yet to enter the scene, Roglic, who had not been seen in competition since his fall in the turn, six months ago. His recovery has been slow, and his form was anyone’s guess, but he has been able to successfully hasten his comeback. His debut was scheduled for the Back to Catalonia on March 20, but the Jumbo decided to field him last week in the Tirreno-Adriatico. While Pogacar exhibited himself again in Paris-Nice against Vingegaard, the other Slovenian also dominated the Race of the Two Seas, although with a different, more personal style. Pogacar and Roglic are not comparable cyclists. While the former feels comfortable with long attacks, the latter focuses his lethality in the final stages.

In this way, Primoz managed to be crowned in the final general classification, with three stage wins. And he did it without being one hundred percent, a very relevant detail. Roglic thus joins the triumphal party of the most mediatic roosters. They have all already won this season. The program of Jumbo in this 2023 it is to separate Vingegaard and Roglic for the leading goals. While the Dane will defend his title in the Tour, the slovenian will assault the Turn, the only big one that resists the Dutch squad. After seeing the performance of both in the past week, the debate on the advisability of Roglic also reinforcing the team in France. In principle, it is not the intention. Primoz takes his own route. And, for now, he has started with renewed and hopeful strength.
