Roglic, with doubts: "I thought that I would already feel a little better"

The Slovenian admits not having recovered his best feelings after the fall in the Dauphiné that forced him to abandon the race when he was leading.


With only seven days to go before the Tour de France, doubts continue to surround Primoz Roglic. The Slovenian crashed in the fourth stage of the Criterium Dauphiné and, despite not presenting any injuries other than the damage caused by scratches, Roglic and the Jumbo-Visma decided not to risk and abandon the race when they were leading.

A week after the crash, and with the start of the Gala round just around the corner, the winner of the Tour of Spain 2019 and one of the main favorites -probably the maximum for what has been shown in recent days- to the final triumph On the Tour he meets his team in Tignes, finishing preparing the Grande Boucle.

It was there, in Tignes, that Roglic uploaded a photo to his Instagram that raised doubts about how well he is recovering from his injuries. "I have done a bit of cycling. Honestly, I thought I would feel a little better after the fall. We will see what happens in the next few days. I am still optimistic," commented the Slovenian.

Despite this, Roglic's presence in the Tour de France does not seem to be in danger. His team included him in the list of eight riders they will take to the race, and his own partner, Wout van Aert, spoke about his condition. "As far as I know, Primoz is improving. Hopefully it is solved for the Tour. A crash, of course, is never ideal. I have full confidence in our leader," said the Belgian.
