Tadej Pogačar veliki zmagovalec dirke po Franciji

Tadej Pogačar is the big winner of the Tour de France

Written by Sabina Lavrič, translated by JL Flanner & G Translate

V nedeljo se je s formalno parado šampionov do Elizejskih poljan v Parizu sklenila peklenska tritedenska kolesarska dirka po Franciji.

On Sunday, the three-week Tour de France cycling race concluded with a formal parade of champions to the Champs-Elysées in Paris.

Za Slovenijo je bila zgodovinska. Dvojno zmagoslavje sta na njej dosegla Slovenca Tadej Pogačar in Primož Roglič.

It was historic for Slovenia. The Slovenians Tadej Pogačar and Primož Roglič achieved a double victory.

Primož je kar 11 etap vozil v rumeni majici vodilnega na dirki po Franciji. Na predzadnji, odločilni etapi, pa se je zgodil neverjeten preobrat. Na kronometru so mu pošle moči.

Primož rode as many as 11 stages in the yellow jersey of the leader of the Tour de France. On the penultimate, decisive stage, however, an incredible turnaround occurred. On the time trial his strength ran out.

Tadej, ki je danes dopolnil 22 let, je v 36,2 kilometra dolgi vožnji na čas kolo poganjal kot stroj, prehitel Primoža za skoraj dve minuti in oblekel rumeno majico.

Tadej, who turned 22 today, rode his bike like a machine in a 36.2-kilometer time trial, overtook Primož by almost two minutes and wore the yellow jersey.

»Šel sem na polno. Moje sanje so bile, da bi le nastopil na Touru, zdaj pa sem zmagal. To je neverjetno,« je po izjemni predstavi v kronometru 20. etape Toura dejal Tadej.

“I went full throttle. My dream was to just perform on the Tour, and now I’ve won. This is amazing," said Tadej after the exceptional performance in the time trial of the 20th stage of the Tour.

Primož je priznal, da je bil Tadej boljši in da preprosto v nogah ni imel dovolj moči.

Primož admitted that Tadej was better, and that he simply did not have enough strength in his legs.

Mnogi so Tadejevo vožnjo označili za eno izmed najboljših kolesarskih predstav posameznika vseh časov. Poleg rumene je osvojil tudi pikčasto majico za najboljšega na gorskih vzponih in belo majico za najboljšega mladega kolesarja.

Many have described Tadej's ride as one of the best individual cycling performances of all time. In addition to the yellow, he also won a polka dot jersey for the best on mountain climbs and a white jersey for the best young cyclist.

Njegov uspeh je še toliko večji, ker ob sebi ni imel tako močne ekipe kot Primož.

His success is even greater because he did not have such a strong team with him as Primož.

»Vsak dan v treh tednih smo naredili vse popolno. Vse smo natančno načrtovali. Pripravljeni smo bili na praznovanje,« je bil razočaran eden od kolesarjev v Primoževi ekipi Jumbo Visma.

“Every day for three weeks, we did everything perfectly. We planned everything carefully. We were ready for the celebration," said one of the riders in Primož's team, Jumbo Visma, who was disappointed.

Razplet prinaša lepo sporočilo: življenja ne gre načrtovati do podrobnosti; del življenja so presenečenja in za uspeh je treba vztrajati in dati vse od sebe.

This unfolding [of events] brings a nice message: life is not about planning down to the last detail, surprises are a part of life and for success you have to persevere and give your best.
