Van Aert: "I'm happy, only the Tour winner beat me"

The Belgian was satisfied with his performance in the Tirreno, like Pogacar: "This title confirms a great start to the season."


The Belgian Wout van Aert (Jumbo Visma), winner of the final time trial and second overall in the Tirreno-Adriatico, showed his joy for his evident improvement in the timed tests and for having yielded in the fight for the general "only against the winner of the Tour de France ". "It was a difficult Chromium even though it was short. It has been very hard. It is clear that I have improved my time trial in recent years. I am very happy with this victory, with almost all the best time trialists on the start line."

Van Aert, winner of two stages in the Race of the Two Seas, will now focus on the great spring classics, starting next Saturday at Milan-San Remo. "It is a good start to the season. It was the first time I had aspired to the general classification in a stage race and I was only defeated by the winner of the Tour de France. I will try to continue like this in the future, but for now I have the classics in my mind , starting with the Milan-San Remo ".

For his part, the Slovenian Tadej Pogacar (UAE Emirates), was happy to conquer the 56th edition of the Tirreno, his second victory of the season in stage races, which is for the winner of the Tour de France 2020 "a magnificent beginning of season ". "I am very happy with the performance and with this success! After winning the UAE Tour, I now repeat my triumph in the Tirreno-Adriatico. It is without a doubt a fantastic start to the season," Pogacar said at the San Benedetto del Tronto finish line.

Pogacar, 22, will once again compete in the Tour of the Basque Country, which takes place between April 5 and 10. "Now I think I can enjoy a few days off," celebrated the winner of the trident in the Race of the Two Seas.
