Alberto Contador spoke about the variables that will affect Tadej PogaÄar for the rest of the season. Although Contador thinks that PogaÄar is great and that he looks unstoppable, he is still cautious about what could await him.
“Do I think Pogacar is unstoppable this season? Well, if we go by what we have seen so far then we could say he looks unstoppable,” - he said, as quoted by eurosport.com
“But I think that there is a lot of the season left.
I think he is going for the Classics this year… and we will need to see how he manages his efforts. He is putting a lot of energy into his attacks and this could end up taking its toll.
The Tour is by no means an easy task.
There are a lot of factors that come into play. Hitting peak form, preparation, the recovery over three weeks, how his team work, how Jumbo work – his main rival. I think there are a lot of variables.
It’s true, for now he looks unbeatable and Pogacar is capable of almost anything but I do think that there will be some races that will be harder for him than others”.
Alberto Contador on Tadej Pogacar
Contador hopes that Pogacar will be equally aggressive and offensively oriented. Many want to see a real Pogacar who can do a lot with his quality. “I wouldn’t like it because I think one of the things that allows us cycling fans to enjoy the sport is enjoy the type of show that Pogacar can put on.
It’s incredible how he can go for it from a great distance from the finish line, or in the yellow jersey or just for some bonus seconds to keep gaining time.
I think that is gold and I wouldn’t like to see him race in a smarter way.
A separate thing is what him and his team decide with regards to winning the Tour de France again”.
