Milan-San Remo and Paris-Roubaix race: San-Remo is the most difficult
He now has to win Milan-San Remo and Paris-Roubaix, which will not be an easy task.
The possibility of such an option was also discussed by Pogacar. “We saw San-Remo is the most difficult. This year I was there in one of the best shapes of my life, but it was really tough to win. We don’t give up.
We have San-Remo and Roubaix to go…” he said. Pogacar still has not taken part in the Paris-Roubaix race. Even so, that doesn't mean it won't happen at some point in the future. There is a great deal of ambition on the part of the Slovenian and he may be able to take part in such a competition.
At the end of the day, he said that such an option was not ruled out. “We’ll see. I think I need to gain a few kilos for Roubaix and then we see,” he said.
“And I need to toughen my hands for the cobbles, but maybe in the future”.
