After his victory at the Tour De France 2020 we asked the young champion to tell us about his fantastic teammates.
It all started in the family, when a young Tadej wanted to follow his brother's footsteps. Who would have thought that the kid who ran with an aluminum bike and fell because he couldn't release the pedals would become the king of Paris?
After the first year in the Rog team all his talent emerged, raising his expectations and those of the people around him.
The 2020 edition was the first Tour for Pogacar. In a particular year and in a postponed edition due to Covid, the team managed to reach the most important appointment of the season in good shape.
His goal was to finish in the top five, but then managed to surprise everyone in the penultimate stage, the time trial of Les Planche des Belles Filles where he ousted his Slovenian compatriot Roglic.
Once again Pogacar was able to surprise us all, racing a perfect stage without even the computer mounted on the bike: that day the sensations were good and when he heard on the radio that he could aim not only for the stage victory, but also for the general classification, he began to push on the pedals motivated by the whole team and the fans behind him.
In modern cycling, where data is king, the heart and the legs have prevailed.
A victory that could not have existed without the support of the entire UAE Team Emirates, which supported and helped the champion at all stages of the season.
To celebrate this outstanding result, we create two special editions especially for him.
The first is his personal saddle customized with the Slovenian flag and his logo, given to him after the finish on the Champs-Élysées. The yellow detail is the indelible mark of this company.
The second one was created on the occasion of the 2021 edition of the Grand Boucle and sold in 100 pieces in the best shops in the world, as a celebration of the most important event of the year that made us so excited.
The Pogacar’s saddle is a version with custom graphics of the Scratch M5, the saddle most loved by road and mountain bike professionals thanks to its versatility.
