Tadej Pogacar stuns Primoz Roglic, set to win Tour de France.

I have only watched the last half of this Tour de France but today was exciting with all the story lines.

  • Roglic had less than a minute lead over Pogacar at the start of today's time trial.

  • Roglic team had been dominate all week in the mountains

  • Roglic and Pogacar are friends from Slovenia

  • Pogacar will win the yellow jersey (general classification), the white jersey (best young rider), and the polka dot jersey (King of the Mountain)

  • Pogacar will turn 22 on Monday

  • Porte, started day 4th and in his likely last Tour, will finish on podium in 3rd place. Again shows how close this tour was
