After winning his second Tour de France in a row, Jonas Vingegaard has assured that he will be present on the French roads next year to defend his throne.
Jonas Vingegaard was clearly untouchable this year. After seeing a long struggle with Tadej Pogacar, the leader of the Jumbo-Visma knocked out the Tour de France 2023 during the Combloux time trial last Tuesday, before delivering the coup de grace to his Slovenian rival the next day, in the Col de la Loze. In the end, the Dane finished more than 7 minutes ahead of “Pogi”, thus winning his second consecutive Tour. Something to whet his appetite…
Sunday, on his arrival in Paris, Jonas Vingegaard said he wanted to try the pass of three next year. “I’m almost certain to come back, yes. We haven’t talked about it at all, but the way I envision it, I would like to do it again. And win again of course yes”launched the 26-year-old runner during an interview with the newspaper The team.
“Priority to the Tour de France”
And to add: “The Tour is by far the biggest Tour for me. Next year, I will therefore still not do the Giro I think. I’m not saying that I will never do it, but we will see that in the future. Priority at the Tour de France. » This promises a new big battle with Tadej Pogacar, who also aims to “come back stronger” in a year.
