Pogačar new Slovenian champion in TT
Tadej Pogačar won the Slovenian individual time trial title.
On a 44 km course in Ljubljana, he obtained his 5th seasonal victory and the first national pro title beating Matej Mohoric (+29″) and Jan Tratnik (+45″) both from Bahrain-Merida.
Pogačar: “I was aware of the high level of the competitors, especially considering the participation of Mohoric and Tratnik, however I was well trained, I worked hard after the Tour of California.
In the first part of the course I set a regular pace, close to my limit, and in the second half I push as hard as I could.
I’m really satisfied with my performance and with this beautiful national title“.
