Can Pogacar have any needs?
It’s time for this version of 109 to bow to Tadej Pogacar (UAE Emirates). The Slovenian fell asleep on the tarmac and couldn’t observe the time set by Wout van Aert in Hautacam (18th stage), and on Saturday he was crushed within the Rocamadour time trial by Iona Vingegaard, his head already within the cradle of the sacrament. So what would the double proprietor of the Grand Boucle lack? Endurance is above all of the legs. “Pogi” landed in Hafen from the broadest signal due to his lean again fence, however it should be admitted that he was the strongest of the Tour and was additionally the winner of the meter applause within the passage of Denmark.

Pogacar and the doctrine of failure: “I’ll return hungry.”
AN HOUR I GO
Vingegaard is aware of methods to deal with underwater fauna and reverse on a bicycle. Scandinavian Each day arabesques Pogacar in his frivolities the general public has noticed from afar. The yellow jersey futura is step by step raised, holding the delicate calves to the highest of the nest. Within the theater of Granon, crucial second of Taurus for a lot of, Pogacar misplaced his hand within the harmful recreation of chasing all of the hares.
It was an ideal present: Abstract of the mad eleventh scene
The issue is that the Slovene, gifted as he’s, shouldn’t be touched by the position of ubiquity, and has misplaced the smile that he was keen to indicate to the queen’s lovers. This occasion didn’t remorse my opinion, as a result of “Pogi” was actually inferior to Vingegaard on this Tour, confirming the chronology of Rocamadour, the impressions attributable to the glacial domination of the hornbill within the highest mountains.
I believe I do know of three moments wherein the double champion may have modified the course of occasions: the Tremendous Planche des Belles Filles, the Granon stage and the next day Alpe d’Huez. Then, apparently, it’s fairly clear that the extent of the curve is inverted.
So the primary second, on the desk of essentially the most lovely ladies. I am nonetheless stunned that Pogacar did not strive one thing on the terrific ramp that often results in a traditional objective. If Vingegaard held on, he ought to have, in my eyes, been capable of ship him down a rocky highway afterward. For the achieve is actually relative in time, however it doesn’t lack an emblem.
Second, crucial second, Granon. Or somewhat Galibier. Why does Tadej Pogacar enter the Jumbo-Visma recreation? Jonas Vingegaard covers the assault, in fact. However what do you consider Primoz Roglic, greater than two minutes away, as an opponent? “Pogi” should let go of his compatriot and waited for his teammates to journey. Du Granon had maintained that the power was missing in Col.
Within the third second, the second assault on Alpe d’Huez. The yellow ligula was sitting half a second earlier than him. This hook would have earned Vingegaard the rock extra certainly, who was not but certain of his mastery. Sure, three regrets. Did they alter the look of the vacationer? That is one other story.
Pogacar tried twice, however Vingegaard didn’t cease
Is Vingegaard lastly the winner?
In fact I will not make so many pals on this story, however I do not discover Jonas Vingegaard an excellent winner. The strongest within the Tour – let’s take the anomalies of nature that van Aert is discussing – that is unassailable, however I used to be not taken by the Dane’s chilly and calculating type, which jogs my memory of Roglic elsewhere. of 2020 in these works.
Now let’s ask the type of the yellow jersey, most frequently connected to the again of the chair, with out wrinkles below the black glasses. Vingegaard shouldn’t be very “fairly” to look at, and I can inform anybody towards me in any other case. Dane as a dancer offers the picture of a damaged bone with an empty soul. His story – the contact – of a kid fisherman with an affordable plan to drown within the midst of a colossus of Danes shouldn’t be sufficient to distract this ugly feeling that follows me after I take a look at it.
Jonas Vingegaard to win the 18th stage of the Tour de France 2022, in Hautacam – 07/21/2022
Credit score: Picture
Add to that an excessively conservative race type, and you’ve got a bland, light winner. What additionally struck me was pondering of Jumbo-Visma for Vingegaard, his teammates virtually designating a yellow jersey for him. As well as, Pogacar’s autonomy acts as a blessing to the scholar that I’m. Vingegaard is comparable in my view to “tanguy”, wedged between the thighs of Jumbo, whereas the white jersey purchased his bread alone for a very long time. We both have class or we do not.
I fully agree with Amaury, Jonas Vingegaard doesn’t make himself one of the best winner. A bit like Tadej Pogacar final 12 months, his Tour lacks a little bit of epic breath. Maximo-Bornand was for him the Slovenian, there was Granon (and Hautacam) for him.
It is laborious to say that I did not discover that this Tour was nonetheless spectacular. Is it because of Jonah Vingegaard? A little bit bit. Because of Jumbo-Visma? Many. I do know a few of the superb Jumbos are performing no less than, very suspicious, more often than not. Maybe sooner or later they are going to be challenged by proof. It’s clear, nonetheless, that the ultimate success bears the stamp of a confirmed staff, if not new, no less than uncommon at this stage.
An unbelievable transition of weapons: Vingegaard, Roglic and Pogacar in Galibier
This mixture of the motion of Roglic and Vingegaard within the Galibier will stay as a big picture for a few years. And sure, Jumbo dominated the race within the Pyrenees, however not conservatively by putting folks on a special race stage. Lastly, I am unable to assist however return to the guts of La Planche in 2020. With the assistance of Tadej Pogacar, the Dutch staff rolls up their sleeves and racks their brains to discover a parade for the supposed double proprietor’s excellence.
Is Van Aert actually the favourite on the Plains?
I need to ask with a smile “however what scene shouldn’t be cute?”. I scoff, I will say no to the query. I instantly dismiss the drained “WVA” thesis. Did you discover it much less current this Saturday, when Filippo Ganna relegated greater than half a second? When did Vingegaard, Pogacar and Thomas dominate? He may have left the journey within the fourth week as a result of the Belgians may discover nothing to complain about.
However, I take the freedom of recalling that van Aert has not gained the majority of the dash on the roads of the Tour for over a 12 months. It was on the Champs-Elysées, to be exact. Since then he has three … second locations. A wonderful testimony, however the inexperienced Caesarea nonetheless stumbles upon a person. On this case three: Jakobsen, Groenewegen and Philipsen.
Merciless for Thomas, nice for Philipsen: the final kilometers within the video
They carry out with pure and laborious pace. I don’t say that I must be stunned to fall from my chair if I see my arms raised this Sunday, due to this fact it isn’t the wind. In addition to, I have no idea to whom the title must be attributed, maybe there may be none. Lastly, after this season, Jumbo-Visma is aware of that she received the Tour de France. Will not there be slightly decompression within the staff? The tears of Wout van Aert on Saturday in Rocamadour go on this route.
I additionally need to reply, regardless that the Belgian has not but triumphed on this enormous Toure bundle (2nd time). The sensible type of Fleming’s time trial winner at Rocamadour on Saturday, these few doubts have crept into my thoughts. The Champs-Elysées dash is completely different from the others. His strategy is exclusive. Within the lead, others need to rush shut originally of the final stretch, others will bide their time, on the danger of seeing the road slip rapidly below the wheel.
Final 12 months, van Aert was launched from the season, however he additionally took benefit of the visitors jam to launch the rocket of Mark Cavendish, the satan within the 2021 classic (4 victories). It’s important there: success in essentially the most lovely method on this planet, which typically requires for others. The final crown within the Champs was André Greipel. “Gorilla Rostock” acknowledged two successes from 2015 to 2016, a essential expertise within the tough Parisian flint.
Cavendish captured, supersonic Van Aert: stay within the Champs-Elysées dash
With unshaken bodily situation and profitable expertise, WVA advances to the title with a model of undisputed love in my eyes. In fact, catastrophe can’t be dominated out. There are nonetheless nice prospects to beat: Caleb Ewan (winner in 2019), Dylan Groenewegen (2017), Fabio Jakobsen, Jasper Philipsen, and so on. What is definite is that, by the point they rub the wheel of the explorers, will probably be the super-aggressive version of 2022.

Orcus has been rewarded: Van Aert was chosen because the super-combatant of the Tour.
