Unchained episode 2 (Tourmalet stage) shows a clip of Niermann laughing maniacally when their team dropped…. O’Connor. That just reaffirmed all my negative emotions towards the guy. Lack of class and lack of respect towards the peloton IMO. I understand you let such emotions show when you drop Pog, but O’Connor? It couldn’t be anything but pure schadenfreude… TBH, Jonas must be quite a nice guy to be able to keep his composure in such environment…
They should be humble specially after years and years of Rabofail.

He should transform pain in additional motivation. Not a good news since TDF is round the corner and he should be focused only on this.

Race organizers should require hands off the athletes. This is assault under any other condition

Can you translate to me?
Pogacar had to end the altitude training three days earlier than expected due to the death of his grandfather


Tadej Pogacar lost his grandfather a few days ago. The Slovenian from UAE Team Emirates, top favorite for the upcoming Tour de France, therefore had to cancel his altitude training three earlier than expected.

Setback in the run-up to the Tour de France for Tadej Pogacar. After his victory in the Giro, the Slovenian seemed to have had a flawless preparation for the Tour, but a few days ago he received sad news during his altitude training camp in Isola 2000, France - the death of his grandfather. Pogacar rushed back to Slovenia to be with his family.

The altitude training, which started on June 3, ended three days later than expected. The preparation for the Tour was slightly disrupted in terms of training, but the death of his grandfather will probably mainly be a blow mentally.

Pogacar will soon try to become the first rider since Marco Pantani in 1998 to win the Giro and the Tour in the same season. The first part of that mission has already been completed, the second will begin on June 29 in Florence.
