Pogacar points to the double in the Europeans of Trento

The Slovenian, Tour de France champion, will compete in the long-distance event and quite possibly in the time trial of the Europeans in Trento from 8 to 12 September.


The Slovenian Tadej Pogacar, double champion of the Tour de France, has signed up for the next cycling Europeans in Trento (Trentino, northeast Italy), which will be held from September 8 to 12, the organizers reported on Tuesday in an official statement.

One of the great stars of Slovenian sport, Pogacar will seek to enrich his already brilliant record, which at 22 sees him as the winner of two consecutive editions of the Tour, the Liege Bastoña Liège and the bronze medal at the last Tokyo Games.

Pogacar is emerging as one of the favorites, together with Belgian Remco Evenepoel, to prevail in the test on Sunday, September 12, with a route of 179.2 kilometers and demanding climbs such as that of Monte Bondone, which will precede the final circuit.In principle, he also plans to participate in the 22.4-kilometer time trial on Thursday 9, in which he is also one of the favorites.

The Europeans, which were originally scheduled to take place between September 9 and 13, 2020, were postponed to this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
