“Today was a great day for me. I didn’t make any mistakes and had perfect weather. Too bad it was a bit wet for others. The temperature was also fine for me.”
“I explored the course in advance. In previous time trials I often made a mistake by starting too fast.”
“In this time trial we immediately had a climb to process and so I started a bit slower. Then I was able to distribute my energy well until the end.”
“The goal for the time trial was not to lose any time. But now I’m also winning and I’m super happy. I’m really looking forward to the rest of the Tour.”
Due to a strong Mathieu van der Poel, Pogacar was unable to take over the yellow jersey today.
“It might be better not to take a yellow card yet. Moreover, the yellow suits Mathieu very well.”
