Helped out on the downhill more. I averaged 5-10 on any uphill, 15-20 on flatter parts, and 40-50 on the downhill. There is a baby Mur de Huy at like 22% but only maybe 50 yards. Damn thing felt like I was walking but going 5 mph.Better than Formolo (and quite good, I'd say).
I guess the prep talk from Šimundža was a bit longer than the one from Ferguson. But the fans in Maribor found a nick name for Tottenham based on the regional dialect, "toti ham" ("toti" in the regional dialect meaning "this" and ham used from English).What's Slovenian for "Lads it's Tottenham"
Former MMA fighter and mulltiple tim BJJ and submision gappling WC Ricardo Arona became a surfer after he stopped competing, he made it to the World Surf League.Well, Bixente Lizarazu, after football, switched to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu... He also surfs and has done some other weird sports competitively.
There also is Eric Heiden, who did quite a switch for instance. But yes, I'm sure nobody else has ever successfully switched from ski-jumping to road cycling on such levels.
My take on this is Carols couldn't have done it in the first place. That is at TDF 2020 Roglič said to himself it's in the bag. After double checking realizing the bag had a hole in it and he saw a glimpse of Pogačar smiling face through it. A couple of stitches sorted it all out. And the bag continued to be filled successfully afterwards.Unless Carols stole that too!
"Gremo, pubeci!". Knowing the coaches background regarding (football club) Maribor. Or maybe he is fully accustomed and accommodated at Mura now. Then he would likely say something in the lines of "Idemo, čarno-bejli!". Both roughly translates to "Let's go lads we got this!" involving some "local slang", not slur.What's Slovenian for "Lads it's Tottenham"
I was getting confused after reading the first couple Q&A from the interview with Miholjevic. Only then I realised it's from 2019...lol
An anecdote from 2012. Roglič participated at a race in Istra. The opposing team tried to crack him for a 100 kilometers, wanted to made the selection on Oprtalj climb but Roglič did not blink an eye.
Climb the Oprtalj Portole via Livade by bike. The Oprtalj Portole is 398 high. You gain 380 altitude metres in 5 km. Watch the profile, route, ranking, stories, images, gpx-file, ...www.climbbybike.com
Finally they did a "Sonny" to prevent him to take the win on that race. Apologized for it later. I guess just the normal things junior cyclists need to learn. To be successful later in their careers.
Didn't the look Roglič gave to the journalist immediately gave it away? Even Mohorič was like c'mon give Roglič a break. Ah the lovely memories. As junior Roglič really wasn't a big fan regarding the press.I was getting confused after reading the first couple Q&A from the interview with Miholjevic. Only then I realised it's from 2019...lol
I like how you managed to use only the 2 worst lines in the article to make it look the worst from Roglic' point of view.Well Van Aert is now openly talking about winning green jersey in TdF 2022 and is expecting full team support.
Team is also expecting to fight for yellow jersey (Roglič). 100% Jumbo Visma would have full hands with Pogačar and UAE team and Bernal - Ineos team. Now half the team will chase itermediate sprints, lead out Van Aert to the finish line....this won't work.
But it does look bad.I like how you managed to use only the 2 worst lines in the article to make it look the worst from Roglic' point of view.
The Vingegaard situation really is quite crazy. I mean... I think if someone had asked him at the beginning of this year what his TdF aspirations are, he could very well have said something like getting his debut in 2022, on Danish asphalt.Add the Vingegaard situation on top (i.e. a rider who finishes 2d in the Tour can certainly aspire towards a far more "protected" status the following year) & we see a quasi Ineos situation with too many chiefs & not enough Indians. It makes winning yellow all the more difficult if too many in the team have their own personal ambition.
The terrain is favorable to Van Aert this time, but there are lots of points up for grabs in the flat sprint finishes / intermediate sprints. He gets boxed in sometimes. He's right that he needs support if he wants to go for green.The mighty Wout showed his versatality during this year's Tour. He doesn't need any help maybe except Primoz helping during a few tricky sprints.
It's not just about results. Van Aert is more important to the sponsor.Really hasn't won big enough this year to make demands of Roglic' TdF team.
