“It helps me a lot”, the miracle drink that made Pogacar win

Pogacar is a cycling genius and one of the best riders of his generation. Its secret lies in a drink that is, to say the least, incongruous.

While Slovenian prodigy Tadej Pogacar discovered the Tour of Italy for the first time in his career, he literally & crushedé the competition by winning very widely with almost 10 minutes ahead of the second, Daniel Felipe Martinez. The two-time winner of the Tour de France seems to be on another planet than his direct competitors.

This year, Pogacar will attempt for the first time to double the Tour de France and the Giro, with the ambition of winning both three-week events. A real feat, which only seven runners in history have achieved. The latest is Marco Pantani, in 1998. Before him, Indurain did it in 1992 and 1993, just like Bernard Hinault in 1982 and 1985, or Eddy Merckx in 1970 and 1972.

To achieve this performance, Slovenia can count on astonishing help. On the Tour of Lombardy last October, Tadej Pogacar indeed revealed was able to count on a strange drink to save him from a physical breakdown. In the Sigma Sport Café Ride, he explainedé having felt cramps during the transalpine event and having thought he would lose his title on the Monument. "I knew I could go down a little early but climb up with a cramp, it wasn't possible," he replied. ;vélé.

The 25-year-old runner explained: that this is not the first time that he has resorted to this miracle drink to avoid cravings.

Tadej Pogacar is definitely an astonishing runner, who does not experience the race in the same way as his competitors in the platoon. During the last Tour of Catalonia, he made a mistake. company with the rest of the riders to hide in a bush and observe the reaction of the other cyclists.

This 2024 season, which started in a thunderous manner for the Slovenian, could be historic if he manages to win. get ahead of the competition à both on the Giro and on the Tour de France, with a few days later the road race of the Olympic Games à Paris. For this, its famous vinegar-salt-cucumber juice preparation could well help it to achieve this. prevent a failure.
