I remember when Pogacar first emerged as the world number 1 and a lot of credit was given to ingo san Milan for his training style, he almost became a guru..

But then there was all this hype about the other guys he coached on uae, and those riders never really went anywhere. He also seems very vague on interviews with what he prescribes. I never believed that Pogacar was doing only z2 and 15 minutes efforts but I don't doubt that there are probably a lot of improvements for the heat training and altitude blocks. He had his best spring in 2023 and that was the first spring without altitude.

Pogačar is a simple guy, he does what he is told and he never publicly praised San Millan, San Millan praised himself wherever he went and Pog blamed him for that, he is a disastrous coach, he is more of an expert in blood tests, that something is wrong Pog saw with the arrival of the strong Visma and the fishermen where until then there was no problem with the heat, Visma exposed every stage with a strong pace and what changed? nothing! and Pog found 2023 where for the 1st time since arriving in the UAE he did not have altitude training before the UAE tour and he opened the season in Spain without altitude training and only on the basis of talent he worked miracles in the spring of 2023, whenever the charlatan Millan was at the altitude camp he did not knew how to determine adequate training and the problem was overtraining, which is fatal at altitude, and San Millan had not even heard of the Core device, be patient and you will already see a Pog in Catalonia that will raise some people's eyebrows, I am ready to donate 10,000 E for humanitarian purposes if Vingo leave Pog in the mountains Tour 2024
 
Dearest mou, could you please elaborate on this statement? If 65 kilograms is to be presumed 100%, what would 64 kilograms mean in this matter, exactly? Can we see both numbers as to being 100%, or is he going to be at 101.56% in July?
Pogačar at 100% with 65 kg means that at the end of each stage on the Giro, Pog can leave in the dust whoever he wants and who will win both TTs, and Pog 100% on the Tour means everything the same as on the Giro, only with 1 kg less, and that's you my friend means that if he is ready for the Giro after 4 hours he will have 6.78w/kg on the final hill which lasts 30 minutes and he will have 6.9w/kg on the Tour
 
none of you know that Pog tests himself every month on Madonna via Gorbio, after each training block of 3 weeks, and so far his record for February was 23:59min 9.77km 7.1% VAM 1747 4 days before departure for Strade Bianche achieved 22:29, VAM 1850, the plan for the Giro is to be around 22 min on Madonna and that after 4 hours of driving around 5w/kg, I want Vingegard for the Tour the best ever to be at least interesting because when Pog drops him again like on stages 9 and 15 there is no return for him like 2023

F***in legend 😂
 
This is quite funny because all forum experience points to mou's words as being pulled out of his behind, yet the absolute freak we all saw in Strade Bianche makes it seem like there could be something behind it. Also, why would he switch trainer in the first place? Was it San Millán's own choice to leave the team?
see if Pog follows San Millan on insta and they were great, even a clown posted pictures hugging Pog😉

I mean, he did provide some sort of evidence with the power files. I wouldn't rule out him having someone on the inside, albeit he is overselling this into oblivion. Jeroen Swart being one of his only followers doesn't seem like a coincidence.
