LA VOULTE-SUR-RHONE, France (VN) — Primož Roglič races this week at Critérium du Dauphiné for the first time since a knee injury derailed his spring campaign and casted doubt on his Tour de France preparation.
With the Tour just weeks away, the Jumbo-Visma star is hoping to push through this week’s challenging terrain in the French Alps without another flareup.
“I feel good and that’s important for this moment,” Roglič said Sunday at the start. “I hope to have good sensations this week. I am healthy again and I am here to race.”
The Slovenian star was the center of attention Sunday morning in this small village along the Rhone Valley, and everyone wanted to know how he’s feeling.
With a highly anticipated clash with Tadej Pogačar just weeks away in the 2022 Tour, Roglič insisted he’s training without pain.
“After the Basque Country, I went back to Slovenia and it took quite awhile in the end. I was three weeks off the bike,” he said. “I started to feel better, but then I got back again. I just wanted to take my time and now I am feeling good, and all of that is behind us.” Also read: Roglič is coming off a three-week training camp at altitude in Spain’s Sierra Nevada, and said all signals are good for the Tour.Roglič starts the eight-stage French race […]
