Emotions have curiously turned 180 degrees for some fans regarding the indomitable Pog and his rivalry with Vingo. After the last two years, it is Vingegaard who is now regarded as an unbeatable robot and Pogi as the underdog. I've been concerned that Pog's doing the Giro will put too much mileage into his legs when July comes around ... but maybe I'm wrong (hoping). That performance at Strade Bianche was a proper thermo-nuke strike.

Mou has already told us how it really is vwpe style, so I think people will come around and start believing in Pogi again.

Tour will probably be Jorgenson vs del Toro anyway, though.
 
the difference between Pogacar 2019-2023 and Pogacar 2024 is like the difference between Movistar Jorgensen and Visma Jorgensen, I hope that there is someone here who finally understands what awaits Vingegard and that properly done heat training really helps in mastering tolerance and performance in high heat and that proper training altitude means a lot, and until now Pogacar with the clown and fraudster San Millan had neither of those two, that's why it always seemed to everyone that spring Pogačar was better than Tour Pogačar, which is not true at all, and the whole world will see that this year at the Tour

Sounds great.
 
Pogačar base 2024 is Pogačar's peek at Flanders 2023, Pogačar TT is currently at the level of Remco, Pogačar, whom you will soon see at the Giro and Tour, will no longer have problems with the heat that simply drains him day by day, that Vingo has a better recovery than Pog is the biggest misconception, we saw it last year at Paris-Nice hehehe, as the stages went by, Pogi was more dominant and in the last stage he had 7 w/kg for 15 min at the end of the stage, remove the factor of great heat and no one in the history of cycling has and will not have better recovery than Pogacar, no one will ever leave Pogacar on the hill from today, not even a fisherman, but blessed are those who do not see but believe
 
He can even deduce that San millan is a charlatan and a fraud.
The relationship between San Millan and Pogačar cooled down when a training plan had to be made after the fall in Liege, San Millan was struggling, told him to do the same things as before, while Tadej wanted an alternative training plan because he was 20 days behind in training due to the fall and then Pogačar finally understood everything and unfollowed him from Instagram after the Tour, after that he talked to Domen Novak, with whom he has a good relationship, and who praised Sola as the best coach he had worked with and recommended him, which Tadej accepted, all of whom San Millan trains stagnate and do not give performance considering the talent and this Pogacar from 2024 had winter (base training) for the first time in his life at the level of Visma and we see the result of that on Strade Bianche and this Pog from Strade is at 85%, or I have to prove to you again that I have his training plan for the Giro and Tour, if necessary I will set it up again 😉😉😉

Now seriously, are you Pogacar or Urska?

Pogi, i already told you, 7 w/kg is not enough.

Just look at how much Pog's basic training normalized power-349w, which he can hold for hours, is 5.33w/kg, and how much it was from the attack on Strade until the end of the stage 360w 5.5w/kg, that's why you saw a fresh Pogi at the finish line and all the others dead because if we exclude his attack and a slightly stronger pace that lasted about 15 minutes, everything else for him was a slightly stronger base zone 2 training, so now you believe in whatever you want
