Isn't Pog also said to not train a TT oriented position on the TT bike since he favours to have more power instead of Aerodynamics?Just something Pog related:
He hasn't done an individual time trial in competition since early March (Tirreno). I'm maybe way off the mark here but looking back at all previous TdF winners (Pog included), that seems like an eternity for someone who is favorite to win the TdF (& do well in the ITT's as well... or even smash them).
Dauphiné ITT, Suisse ITT, Romandie ITT & national championship ITT etc. are the usual warm-up races for TdF contenders & winners. It always seemed 'normal' (as much as stuff can be normal in the pro peloton) for Tour contenders to at least test their TT equipment, positioning etc. in an actual race before the TdF.
But as Pog apparently isn't doing the Slovenian National Championships, he's going into the Tour with very little time on the TT bike in a real race this year.
It could be nothing but I still find this unusual.
I thought that was the explanation that was given when a roflstomped Roglic in the final ITT.
Same jubberish as Wiggens being better @ 90% for a whole year then peaking..
