Pogacar warms up for Tour de France with home victory

Tadej Pogacar warmed up for the defence of his Tour de France title by winning the Tour of Slovenia on Sunday as German Phil Bauhaus won the fifth and final stage into Novo Mesto.

“I’ve wanted this victory for a while and I am really happy with it,” said Slovenian Pogacar, who rides for Team UAE.

“My condition is quite good, I will rest now for a while, do some more training and then the Tour will start”, he said, adding that it would be “more difficult than last year, for sure”.
