Dolenjec claims that the deficit of 30 seconds can be made up on Saturday, and more only if one of the riders has a bad day. He warns that it should not be expected that he will Geraint Thomas had based on what he saw at this year’s Giro.
Rupar reports that most of Italy’s seventh-place team want to see the Welshman on top of the podium. Thomas who it is celebrated his 37th birthday on Thursday, namely he much prefers chatting with the media than Primož Roglič.
Olympic time trial champion it is had a much better day on Thursday than on Tuesday, Štangelj believes that he did not have a bad day on Tuesday at all, only minithe crisis which it is got through perfectly, but in the last mountain stage it would be best for Zasavac to have someone else attack, in which case Roglič could more easily control the course of the race with more numerous and better team support compared to his rivals.
