Tadej Pojjakar on a tip: ‘Doping controls prove critics wrong’

Tadej Pogačar first responded to a smoldering tip about his performance in the Tour de France. The yellow-shirt wearer says several doping controls prove critics wrong.
On the first day of rest, Bojjar spoke to the international media for exactly twelve minutes during the traditional yellow jersey press conference. Because of the halo metrics, this happened again via Zoom. After some generalizations about his form and the strength of his team, the final question was what Pogačar wants to do to convince people who doubt his performance that they are wrong.
“I think we have a lot of doping controls that prove them wrong,” he said. “Take yesterday as an example. Then I had three checks in one day. Two before the stage started and one after it. I think this is the way to prove them wrong,” the 22-year-old Emirates captain said.
Pogacar takes the lead in the general classification on the first rest day of the tour. The difference from number two (Ben O’Connor) is more than two minutes, number three (Rigoberto Uran) is followed by more than five minutes. His feature film Solo Stage One From the Alps to Le Grand-Bornand in particular has raised questions among some fans, cyclists and the media. Evidence is lacking.
