Indurain, on the 2020 Tour: "You take it off the TV quickly"

The five-time champion of the gala round commented on Tuesday's stage on Teledeporte and La 1 and was very disappointed by the mileage of this year's stages.


Miguel Indurain attended this Tuesday to comment on the sixteenth stage of the Tour de France on Teledeporte and La 1 with Carlos de Andrés and Perico Delgado. During the broadcast, the five-time champion of the Tour de France between 1991 and 1995 expressed his disappointment at this year's route.

Indurain believes that longer stages are missing (in this edition only one has exceeded 200 kilometers of mileage on the way to Sarran) and that this fact has had an impact on those who watch the race on television. "Many kilometers have been cut in the last rounds of the Tour. Now they are more televised, those who are not very fond of watches it for a while and quickly removes it from the TV," said the Navarrese champion.

The ex-cyclist also confessed that in the Gallic round there should have been harder and more demanding routes that give rise to more battle on the road. "In the Tour there have to be long routes and passes, they have to be agonizing. For these routes there are other types of laps and there are also the classics." In addition, he regretted that there are so few kilometers of time trial and affirmed that the chrono of La Planche des Belles Filles is "an experiment a little strange, flat and then ending uphill" .
