Teams & Riders Everybody needs a little bit of Roglstomp in their lives

I’m not saying Roglic’s injuries in 2022 were necessarily as bad as Pogacar in 2023 or Vingegaard / Remco now, but it is interesting that after a bad knee in the spring and a dislocated shoulder and broken vertebrae in July, certain posters who are fans of a certain rider refused to admit that he was not at full strength in that Vuelta; now I think we can all agree that it’d be ridiculous to fault Remco or Vingegaard, particularly the latter, is they are not at full strength in July.

Here is an interview with Ralph Denk, who also explained how things are going with Roglič at the moment. He has a pretty big hematoma in the knee and abrasions all over the body. He should be able to get back on the bike soon, but at the moment only moderate indoor training is possible. If he can get back on the bike (outside) within the next couple of days, this should only be a minor setback regarding TdF preparation. If he can't train on the bike for a longer period, then it will be really difficult to make up for this. :(

I know these may not be comparable injuries but if he could come back after the fall in 2021 the way he did - already in Olympic ITT and especially in La Vuelta (arguably his best performance ever) on such short notice then I’m having a hard time believing there’s upcoming trouble for this years TdF. I think this is just some click baiting drama now and they’re probably gonna milk this cow dry before the TdF starts…

Click baiting drama regarding Roglic and his injuries when the article opens with and is titled after Kamna. Yes, perfect.

This is Sportschau, boy. Not your nearest BILD.
 
AGR and FW he’d be in for a shot in form, LBL no chance based off his history on long distance. 2020 was a weird year with the race in October. Either way to him only the Tour matters and this could be his best chance. In hindsight he could have had better odds staying at Jumbo in order to have the better team.
There's only so much of Fleche being won by 3rd rate murito riders I can take. The King of San Luca should reign on San Luca's overrated bastard half brother as well

Oh my lord, ardennes will be dreadful too... I just hope he is at 100% in May to prepare the Tour

Ok then - so in the last couple of days we've got news of how Vingegaard is gonna make it to the Tour, maybe even at 100% and then we've got news of how Roglic could have real problems making it to the Tour in shape. Nothing to see here, no drama, just some stuff we should unconditionally agree with...

And don't be ridiculous calling other people "boy", you're making a fool of yourself with your condescending attitude.

Ugh...

First of all, what the hell does the reporting re. Vingegaard have to do with anything? Did you see Merijn Zeeman, Richard Plugge or Grischa Niermann give an interview to NOS to talk about Vingegaards health? No, you did not. That would be the equivalent of what happend here. Sportschau, like the German BBC, holds an interview with Ralph Denk, more or less the CEO of the team to talk about several topics, including Roglic, Kamna and red and yellow cards in cycling. They ask him 'Hey man, what's up with Roglic?'. He gives an explanation that Roglic has a knee hematoma, how his recovery can go several ways, best case scenario, worst case scenario. All he can factually say is that Roglic can only train at very low volume on the home trainer right now, and we will have to see how things progress.

Wow, so much clickbait going on here, disgusting.

I hope you understand now, boy.

Very admirable knowledge of media landscape, good job. However, I don't question the reliability of the media outlet or this specific piece of news. The latter is pretty much a given since it's, well, a video... I'm talking about the fact that Roglic related news sell. That's why they're asking Denk about him, that's why Denk is talking about him and that's why he's getting paid as much as he is. If you're trying to convince me these people are out for bare facts and as opposed to trying to sell stuff it's not me who lacks understanding...

Other than that, we're done.

I didn't see anything but the summery in the post here and had the same knee jerk reaction as you did. Most of the post is fine and makes sense but ending it with:

"If he can't train on the bike for a longer period, then it will be really difficult to make up for this."

Was what made me go eh? The span from "minor setback to this might be catastrophic" was too much for me. Feels like trying to cook things up. Yeah I know they are covering all the bases, but still.

I'm totally philosophical about all of this.

We all know he's going to win the TdF... but in the unlikely event he doesn't, he can go & stomp Kuss in the Vuelta for number 4.

There's always something to look forwards to, i.e. if there's one rider I trust to 'heal up', it's Rog. Whether it's sooner or later, he'll get there.

These are Denk's words. Neither I nor the journalist made this up.
