Alberto Contador tips Tadej Pogacar for historic grand tour triumph

Posted : 26 April 2024

According to Spanish cycling legend Alberto Contador, Tadej Pogacar is poised to make history at this year's Giro d'Italia and potentially achieve a feat unprecedented in cycling – winning all three Grand Tours in a single season. Pogacar's exceptional form, including recent victories at Liege-Bastogne-Liege, Strade Bianche, and the Tour of Catalunya, has solidified his status as the favorite to claim the coveted maglia rosa in his Giro debut.


Contador, a two-time Giro champion, believes that Pogacar possesses the versatility and prowess across all terrains necessary to dominate the competition. With a remarkable ability in climbing, time trials, and descents, the 25-year-old Slovenian presents a formidable challenge for his rivals, making him a strong contender for Grand Tour glory.


While Jonas Vingegaard poses a formidable challenge for Pogacar at the Tour de France, Contador remains optimistic about Pogacar's potential to rewrite cycling history alongside legends like Eddy Merckx. Contador highlights the current era as a "golden moment for men's cycling," citing the extraordinary talents of riders like Pogacar and Mathieu van der Poel, who are pushing the boundaries of the sport.


Although no rider has ever clinched victory in all three Grand Tours within a single season, Contador believes that Pogacar has the capability to achieve this unprecedented feat. Contador's optimism contrasts with the skepticism expressed by former rival Vincenzo Nibali, who questions the feasibility of such an accomplishment. As the cycling world awaits the start of the Giro on May 4, Pogacar's pursuit of cycling history promises to captivate fans and competitors alike.
