Tour de France 2020 :
The Slovenes Primoz Roglic and Tadej Pogacar are still present on the first two places of the general classification of the Tour de France. The former wearer of the yellow jersey in 2008, the Frenchman Romain Feillu is wondering in Ouest-France about the performance of the two riders.
“We know that Slovenia is a small country of two million inhabitants, which has not had a huge track record on the Tour, and which suddenly manages to place two riders in the first two places of the Tour. We must also remember the recent doping past of this country. Borut Bozic, Grega Bole, who was a friend though, but there you go… I don’t think they had the same education as us. Already, among young people, they had very suspicious performances… Of course, they are good runners, I am not saying that they are null, but there it is… ”, indicated Romain Feillu in the regional daily.
“We can see that there is something…”
Before continuing his questioning about the Jumbo-Visma team and the performance of Wout Van Aert: “Those who know the bike know very well that this is not normal. A boy like Wout Van Aert, a puncher, a sprinter, is also able to ride over passes for several minutes and blow up all the climbers very far from the finish and keep riding. There is something wrong. Even Chris Froome was not as extraordinary as Wout Van Aert! There, we can see that there is something… ”
Wout Van Aert has become a real mountain teammate for Primoz Roglic. Suspicious performances for Romain Feillu: “He is on top of everything, and you know very well when you ride a bike that it is impossible to work on all the specialties and to be physically on top everywhere. With the hindsight that I have, I know very well that when a team dominates a race at this point, there is something behind… I remember the US Postal, the CSC with Cancellara and O’Grady in the collars. ”
