With the athlete’s confirmation in the Italian classics present on the UCI calendar, this time there will be a confrontation for the first time with Tadej Pogocar who will also be present in both matches. Furthermore, Remco Evenepoel said that there are chances of being present at II Lombardia.

Lately, after his victory, speculations began to arise that Primoz Roglic could leave his current team Jumbo-Visma. However, the rumors were denied by the team when, in an interview with Escape Collective, Lidl-Trek had shown interest in the athlete.

Dispelling the rumors, Richard Plugge, boss of Jumbo-Visma, stated that the cyclist will continue to be present in the team: “Roglic is our king and it is difficult to abandon him. He has won every GC race he has started this year except this one, and has won 15 races this year. Why would I consider letting him go?”

“If you compare him to football, he is the top scorer who scores the most goals for our team, along with Jonas Vingegaard. If he leaves, we will lose a lot of goals and we will have to find someone who can score more goals and there are no people who can do that”, concluded Richard Plugge.
