    Pog is hungry for more. After winning Amstel Gold he is coming to Belgium to try to win a race that has eluded him thus far.

  6. Amstel Gold Race 2023, one day classic, April 16 (men's)

    The roles are reversed. Pog is racing, Wout and MVDP are not. He is hot off of winning Tour of Flanders, but there are others to challenge him. Last year it was Kwiatkowski, the former world champ, who won it in a head to head against Cosnefroy. The group with MVDP came in 20 seconds behind...

  9. Milano - Sanremo 2023, one day monument, March 18

    PS: Mostly copied from last year :D You know this race. The oldest classic, the sprinter's classic, except when it's not. Will Pogacar, Wout, MVDP and other all rounders manager to drop the sprinters on the Poggior or not? Will Mohoric try on the descent again? Time will tell! Notable...
  10. Paris-Nice 2023, March 5-12

    Let the hype begin! It's a showdown between Pog and Vinge, before their real showdown at the TDF. But there's also a lot of other talent here. Also notable is the TTT of 32 km, where stronger teams will take a lot of time. Notable GC mentions: Pogacar, Vingegaard, Martinez, Skjelmose, Powless...

  14. Tour of Slovenia 2022, June 15 -19

    More hot racing this year. Last year's edition was won by Pogacar. He is going to use this race as TDF preparation instead of Dauphine/Swiss, same as last year. But he is very keen to win it, being his home race obviously. This year he should also have a bit more competition. Also the sprints...
  15. La Flèche Wallonne 2022, one day race, April 20

    It's La Flèche Wallonne! The race in which Valverde wins, and all the others come 2nd or worse. Can Pogacar, Alphillipe, Evenepoel, Vingegaard (and maybe Wout) and others do anything to prevent Valverde winning? The answer is no...

  20. G

    Tadej Pogacar and Mauro Giannetti

    It's about time we address Pogacars remarkable rise since he joined UAE in 2019. His first season as a junior wasn't anything special, but we have to remember that he was born later in year (September) which is a disadvantage at that age. In his second season he definitely proved his talent by...
