Vingegaard: “I don’t know my limit, we try to get close to it”


The second week of the Tour de France ends and Jonas Vingegaard, the reigning champion, continues to lead the overall. He does it with ten seconds of rent compared to his great rival, Tadej Pogacar, after a null fight this Sunday in Saint Gervais.

“It was yet another battle between me and Tadej. The team had a very good feeling, although it is true that several teammates were involved in a fall in the first part of the stage. I hope all those affected are well. I felt more in control of the situation than other days. Maybe I should have attacked, but when I saw it come out Adam Yates thought there was no point in trying it. We can be happy with how the stage went for us”, said the Dane, smiling, although with short answers to the different questions from the media.

The man from the Jumbo continues to show, and make his good feelings visible: “I have confidence in myself and we believe in our plan. I don’t know my limit, we always try to get close to it and that’s the goal, to be close”. In these weeks, time records are being broken in numerous ports. Records dating from the time of Lance Armstrong, dispossessed of the seven Tour that he conquered for doping. “I am happy that there is that skepticism, because we are going faster every time, but I want to say that everything has changed. The food, the stuff… but you have to remain skeptical so that the past does not repeat itself ”, concluded the Dane.

Pogacar, his ‘enemy’, explained how he experienced the stage: “We tried to make the last ascent tough. However, I realized that Jonas was fine and that I was not going to be able to let him go, because the climb was too easy. I tried to improvise and let Adam Yates go so he could get a few seconds ahead of the GC.” That fight, precisely, is with Carlos Rodríguez.

Matxin, general manager of the UAE, He also recognized the strength of the current yellow jersey: “The team continues to coordinate perfectly, Tadej’s legs are fine and The doll doesn’t give her any trouble. Every day it goes more. Our greatest wish is to wear yellow after stage 20. We are confident for it”.
