"Things are now going well", says Jumbo-Visma director Richard Plugge.

"But yesterday we were all very disappointed and astonished. We did not expect this. It is a huge deception because we thought that the lead would be big enough. I was in the car with Primoz for a long time after the time trial. It was mainly very quiet. After a few hours we tried to see where it went wrong. Primoz drove a great time trial, until he was told that it was not going to work. "

Tadej Pogacar took over the yellow jersey from Primoz Roglic on the penultimate day in the Tour de France.

The Slovenian from Jumbo-Visma drove, partly due to his dominant team, controlling his Tour, but was that the right choice afterwards?

NU.nl reporter Daan de Ridder tells in conversation with NU.nl presenter Bas Scharwachter why this is or is not the case.

Reaction Pogacar after time trial


"I only knew that I had won the Tour when I saw Roglic's time at the finish", said Pogacar yesterday, who was already congratulated during his first interview by his disappointed fellow countryman.

"Primoz was the best rider on this Tour. He and his team did a fantastic job. I have so much respect for Primoz and I know how disappointed he must be. But this is part of racing. We are all trying to win, even from friends. "

An unleashed Pogacar raced the 36.2 kilometers in 55 minutes and 55 seconds, which made him a whopping 1 minute and 56 seconds faster than Roglic.
