I sincerely hope that the fisherman is not seriously threatened and that he will be at 100% for the Tour so that the fight will be interesting, nobody wants a repeat of Flanders 2024
Even if todays crash makes the giro tour double easier for pogi and pogi will probably wont like to win it that way i really hope jonas wont lose his cycling career by the crash🙏😟

the biggest materialist among all cyclists is Jay Vine, he only looks at the money, everything through money, for him cycling is pure business without a trace of passion. he loves what about Pog at the Giro because of the prize fund for the winner because Pog always gives up the prize cake when he wins grand Tour and it is divided among 7 riders and a small part gets the staff, so it is not small money when Pog wins the Giro, together with a couple of shirts and a stage, approx. 500,000 is divided into 7 parts, it is an understatement to say that such a person never get along well with Pog in anything, because one is driven by money and the other by pure passion for bikes

That's also my impression. When he won the first Vuelta stage and he was asked what he thought about it, his first answer was 'prize money'.

But okay, he had a horrible accident yesterday, so I'll stop here.

In fairness, I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing in and of itself. He just treats it like a profession rather than a passion, and you're bound to have a few of those in any professional sport. Pro cycling is a fairly brutal career (time away from friends/family, fairly dangerous, not crazy high pay), so I won't judge him for seeing it as a job and not much else.

I also don't see why it means he doesn't get along with Pogacar, as long as he's professional and a good person I don't think it's a fundamental different in values or anything.

Sure, but it certainly is not going to win him fans, and coupled with the rudeness he has demonstrated multiple times against interviewers, I think it's fair to say that it's not a surprise if he doesn't gel too smoothly with everyone on the team.

democracy is the worst thing ever invented because in a democracy 50 trolls without school and with 3 teeth in their heads and with an IQ of room temperature on winter days win and outvote 20 PhDs, good, honest people who work for the common good and that's your democracy brought to this thread, unfortunately there are more of the first mentioned than the second mentioned and they rule here
Bro, who are you talking to, I don‘t see any other posters saying anything against Pogačar, it‘s just you, don quixote
