Adria Mobil should have send guys in the breakaway with Bahrain, you don't bet on Jani beating Pogi and Roglic in 2020.A good training ride for him. He probably made a deal with Roglič and Pogačar. Also Polanc did a lot of work on the flat and probably some Adria Mobil guy for Brajkovič, too.
Has he said something yet?Podium. It seems Pogacar did have a fall at some point in the race.
I guess, they might benefit somewhat in the sense that they now have a confirmation of their shape and could finetune their training schedule based on it. But if it matters all that much, i doubt it. Or not anymore at least. Everybody has heartrate monitors, power meters, nutricionists, multiple trainers, scientific training and testing facilities etc. I think it's become basically impossible to be completely off course in that regard, without red flags popping up all over the place.Does anyone think that Roglic and Pogacar will gain any significant advantage over their other TDF podium contender rivals from the two nationals events or will the 4 week gap before the first UCI races erode the benefits of today’s tester.
Pogačar crashed in the initial part of the race and he said it didn't affect him in the finale. Roglič was simply stronger.Has he said something yet?
EDIT: i just read that Roglic said he had checked out the climb and knew it well, and knew where to attack... i would assume he won due to an attack, and not due to Pogacar crashing?
