Roglic confirms that he will start the Tour de France

In the press conference prior to the start of the test, the Slovenian cyclist revealed that he will be in the next Tour de France despite the fall he suffered in Dauphiné.


Primoz Roglic confirmed this Thursday that he will start the Tour de France next Saturday in Nice. The Slovenian made this announcement at the press conference prior to the start of the race, where he starts as one of the big favorites for the title.

Roglic's presence on the Tour has been unknown until today after the crash he suffered at the Dauphiné, where he left before starting the fifth stage when he was leading the race.

Despite showing doubts about his condition earlier this week, Roglic wanted to dispel them with these statements. "The fact is that I'm here at the start, and that's good news. I'm very happy to be here and I'll try to do my best and then we'll see how everything goes," said the Jumbo-Visma rider.

Roglic also stressed that, despite the crash, he has done everything possible to get to the Tour in the best possible shape. "This previous period was not part of the plan. I have taken time to get back to training and do the things I wanted to do. But I am happy that I was able to train and I am looking forward to the start of the Tour next Saturday."In this way, Roglic will compete on the Tour for the third time in his career after competing in the 2017 and 2018 editions. In the latter, the Slovenian finished touching the podium by finishing fourth behind Geraint Thomas (first), Chris Froome (third) and Tom Dumoulin, who was second in that edition and who in 2020 is presented as the great ally of the Slovenian for the assault on the Jumbo-Visma Tour.
