Jumbo-Visma has so far been the Tour de France team, we can tell. Despite the dominance of Tadej Pojakar, the Dutch team has already won two stages and is competing daily for the marbles. However, there is some criticism from Slovenia, due to the team’s leadership.
With Wout van Aert, Jonas Vingegaard, Primoz Roglic and servants around him, it’s hard to say Jumbo-Visma performed poorly, but Janez Brajkovic thinks otherwise. The former runner from Slovenia gave his opinion to RTVSLO† “Pogacar loses a servant with the Vegard Stake Laengen and they are weakened, but other teams are ready to help the Pogacar team.”
Brajkovic, winner of the Dauphiné Award in 2010 and ninth in the 2012 Tour, refers to Jumbo-Visma. They drive recklessly and even on the days they can bridge the gap with the Pogacar, they drive like they’re wearing the yellow jersey. Pogacar now wants to wear this shirt until the end, but if his team fails, he could have trouble.
Brajkovic: Weinggaard can’t beat Poojakar
So Brajkovic hopes to make other decisions at Jumbo-Visma and expresses it in harsh words. “They should have emotionally mature people in the cars who know how to work under pressure and make the right choices. But nobody wants responsibility at Jumbo Visma, and the passengers ride like a headless chicken.
“Ineos Grenadiers and Jumbo-Visma should be doing something together in the second and third weeks,” he continues. “If they are waiting for the final slopes, it’s too late. The only option is to join forces and isolate Pogačar on the penultimate climb. I was surprised by Jonas Vinggaard, but I think he still couldn’t defeat Pogačar. Not even on longer slopes, though he He says himself that he will be stronger there†
Brajkovic does not expect much from his compatriot Roglic. “He’s more seriously injured than we think. He’s suffering, but he’s staying positive. A rest day won’t help him much, you can’t go from an injured cyclist to a healthy cyclist in one day. Still, Primoz is a fighter and he’s going to do his best, and he might even win.” stage”.
