    It’s real ! Not only witnessed the whole stage but it was crystal clear to me and the T V Commentary that Roglic was pushed for more than the allowed 5 seconds on his bike exchange ! After Jumbo-Visma so dominates this race, they somehow let it all slip away on this final day of reckoning! What happened to Roglic ? Sick, bad food or wrong bike ?

    Thought a ;40 sec lead would be insurmountable, let alone a :57 sec lead. How does Roglic come back from this going forward? Hard not to feel for the guy. I dont think Jumbo-Visma as a team could have had a better TDF, do you? gave their guy a minute in the TT, his specialty !!

    with that said, Podagar had a god-like TT, geez...how good is this guy? what is his future going to be? he's 21- yuongest TDF winner post WWW II


    ..............

    Van Aert, who'd put in a spectacular performances in service of his Slovenian team leader and finished fourth in the time trial, couldn't hide his disappointment that the team would not be bringing home the overall Tour de France victory.
    "It is very difficult to give this up at the last minute," a dejected Van Aert told NOS.nl. "We are very disappointed. Everything went perfectly, actually, we worked very hard for it and there was nothing to indicate that it would go wrong today."


    "It hurt my eyes how Primož got more and more into difficulty," Van Aert said. "It didn't look as smooth as usual, he missed that cadence.
    "And before the start, it all looked so good. But it is a combination of Pogačar that rode really fantastic while Primož did not reach his normal level that ensures this result. We went all out every day. We gave everything and did everything perfectly. We were ready to celebrate, so to speak."

    ............



    Tom Dumoulin, second to Pogačar in the time trial, was stunned at how fast the UAE Team Emirates rider went up the final ascent.
    "What can I say? It happened. I don't know how Pogacar climbed a minute faster than I did," Dumoulin said. "We hadn't taken this into account, this is quite a blow. The Tour win slips from our hands. I rode well again, but that doesn't matter anymore.
    "Pogacar was too strong today. He was at a completely different level than we were. Primoz felt good, he knew he had to put down a good time trial. He hasn't ridden his best, but it certainly wasn't bad either. We expected it to be enough
    .................................................


    Pogačar said that although it was him riding to victory in the time trial, his team had had a huge part to play in his win, one small but vital part of the jigsaw being their ensuring he knew what was coming up on Saturday.
    "We did the recon. together, I knew every corner, every pothole, I knew where to accelerate because it was a road that you really needed to know."
    He added that after he had caught Lopez he did not bother so much with the time gaps, but while he was listening to his radio on the flat part of the course, he didn't hear anything on the limb because of the fans lining the road.
    "I just went deep, I knew the climb very well, so I went flat out from bottom to top. My dream was just to be on the Tour de France, and now I've won, it's unbelievable.

    Stage 21 today and not much excitement or mystery left as Pogacar is the Tour De France Champion in perhaps the biggest surprise ever ! He’s only 21 years old but turning 22 tomorrow as I recall ! Sam Bennett wins green after Peter Sagan reign coming to an end ! Of course the youngster Pogacar will hog 2 more Jerseys in King of the Mountain ( KOM ) and White Jersey for best young rider going to those under 25 years of age. Only thing left today is the Sprint in Paris !

    Yesterday’s stage 21 ended in Paris and Sam Bennett easily won the Champs-Elysees sprint with Mads Pedersen taking second and Peter Sagan finishing third. Of course Tadej Pogacar won the Tour De France yellow Jersey in a total shocking Time Trial domination in stage 20.
    Nobody expected Primoz Roglic to lose his 57 second lead and 16/1 odds on Pogacar were available in Vegas and offshores ! This guy was 21 years old !
    Good luck in all your bets ! I’m done until next year after taking a loss in this year’s Tour wagering ! It’s called gambling !
