Tratnik‘s start at Jumbo was a success recently, but what about Polanc at UAE team in 2023? He hasn‘t raced yet, and starts at Tour of Slovenia, according to PCS:
Jan Polanc (born 1992-05-06 in Kranj) is a professional road racing cyclist from Slovenia, currently riding for UAE Team Emirates. His best results are 2 stage wins in Giro d'Italia and winning Trofeo Laigueglia.www.procyclingstats.com
He is close to Pogacar normally, a loyal helper snd someone Pog trusts and likes to race with. So I assume Polanc either crashed or has health troubles, doesn‘t he?… :-(
It's definitely weird. He was supposed to start the season earlier, he was on the startlist for Andalucía and some other races in February. Hope it's a relatively minor issue and not anything serious or clinic-related...
