Can we react now that he got dropped uphill by a sprinter and a flat rider?
Sure.... he was exhausted. But no matter how down he is put him in a group like that... especially 2 uae teammates from the tour and he's not gonna drop completely. I'm impressed with 5th but I know he'll be better able not topnform but definitely better. If he's there with the best he'll rise.to their level. 6 million is a decent motivator

He did have a UAE teammate yesterday, i.e. Hirschi.

And yes, Hirschi pulled for Pogacar after he was dropped by Evenepoel's attack.

It was a hard race yesterday, that he needed, and will hopefully just improve his form a bit before Worlds and Lombardia.

I mean if he wasnt at his best yesterday, it is still a pretty good race from him. Pretty solid level for not being in top form.

We place high expectations on this guy in every race and it has been a long season that is already a success. If he is able to take another big win that would be incredible, but there is a lot of riders in great late-season form. Which is fantastic!

Hirschi (6th) and Trentin (4th) he came in right between the two. In one interview I saw I think he said (was translated from Slovenian) that that group knew they weren't gonna be able to medal and catch the French guy in 3rd. So I think they all at least the three of them decided to.shoe for UAE more than anything. Nomone was really sprinting too hard there at the finish

Yea! Him and Urska officially confirmed engagement on social media. Definitely spotted that ring last week at Euro. He's definitely making the most of this season and regardless of how it end, this is just the best win all around! Congrats Tadej and Urska. Love how they were in love before he exploded on the scene. Ring is lovely and very low key like them So pumped she'll be there for him on the future. Clear they are great for each other and cycling. Really hope he kicks some ass as World's but he'll be beaming no matter what.
 
Tadej hasn't been in a good form recently so his 5th place at the EU championship is a decent result. He was dropped by Remco so their 10-year war has officially begun. Hopefully he'll be ready to fight for victory in Lombardia.
What kind of a statement is that? He has ridden one race between the Olympics and the Euros...

And okay, he did explode there, but it has hardly been a long-lasting period of bad shape.

Love her shoes. But he's too young to be engaged, lol.
Wish them a happy future!
Apparently Slovenians get engaged early. That said they did wait over 3 years and were friends a year and a half before then. I mean they've lived together that whole time in monaco too. A lot of the riders seem to marry young or have a kid young. Normally I'd agree and say too young, but these two really have been each other's world. Urskas mom had been fighting a nasty blood cancer and hasn't been doing well... the timing may have had something to do with that since they announced it from her home town and he was interviewing there about worlds yesterday. Who knows, but I mean it was going to happen eventually so why not. They've been each other's rock through all this.
