He has biceps, actual balanced core and leg muscles. Contrast that to most dedicated climbers that can't pick up their own bike. As another note: Pogacar is also a non-starved talent which suggests he has some continued resiliency and upside towards strength/weight as he matures. That is scary to his opponents.I think he looks ok. Ok, as far as a world class professional cyclist is concerned. Imagine how skinny other GC riders would look. You often hear people on this forum say how Primož looks like a bodybuilder on the bike compared to other climbers. It makes you think, how skinny pro cyclists really are.
Happy Birthay Primoz. For goodness sake eat some cake!Happy Birthday Primoz Roglic!
I feel his 32nd year is going to be a good one.
It has just ended. You mean his 33rd.
Only half a cake though, i.e. it's standard policy in the Roglic family (this was before the Tour this year):Happy Birthay Primoz. For goodness sake eat some cake!
Alternatively, they already ate half the cake!
I don't see any crumbs. So no... although someone might have eaten it behind his back when he wasn't looking.Alternatively, they already ate half the cake!
They eat Less Junk (burgers, fries, sugar, alcohol) but Hugh Amounts of nutrious food.I don't see any crumbs. So no... although someone might have eaten it behind his back when he wasn't looking.
In all seriousness, for all the talk of constant dieting & scientifically prepared meals in pro cycling, it seems these guys eat quite a bit a fast food like the rest of us (burgers, fries & even pizza) + consume alcohol.
So their life isn't that bad (or at least much different) from a culinary standpoint. They just eat less.
I don't think Pogacar wins if he takes 90 hours to ride the race.Very nice... He enjoys marriage, had great holidays. Soon it‘s back to work. I‘m sure he can‘t wait for the 2022 season to begin.
The big goal is clear: although he will have problems beating Pogi in the Tour, he will want to improve: in 2020, he was 59 seconds behind Pogi in Paris, so everything which is less than these 59 seconds would be improvement. I think it could be like this in 2022:
- Pogi 90:00:00 hrs
- Primoz +29 secs
- Bernal +5 mins
