In a press release, he explained, “To allow my injuries to recover fully, we have decided that I will not start.”
I’m glad that my efforts have helped us get where we are, and I have faith that the yellow and green can accomplish anything we set our minds to. I appreciate everyone’s tremendous help.
According to his team manager,
Richard Plugge, Roglic “suffered a lot all day” during the stage they raced on Saturday. Roglic, who was ranked second in 2020, fell on the fifth stage, dislocated his shoulder, and then re-implanted it.
If Roglic wins a record-tying fourth Vuelta, he will tie Roberto Heras for the most career victories.
After Pedersen and Groenewegen go, Van Aert joins the fray, but Jasper Philipsen, who went first, appears to make it to the fight and holds on as Van Aert lunges and attempts for the line once more. When compared to Sagan, who finished in fifth place, Pedersen came in third.
On Sunday, numerous riders, including race leader Jonas Vingegaard, crashed during Stage 15 of the 2022 Tour de France, which was ultimately won by Jasper Philipsen (17 July).
The Belgian rider for Alpecin-Deceuninck was among the group that caught and passed Benjamin Thomas, who had gotten away from the pack, in the final stretch of the race.
Philipsen, at age 24, won by a hair’s breadth over Wout van Aert, with Mads Pedersen coming in third and Peter Sagan in fourth.
“I know what it was like to lose so many times, it was wonderful,” said Philipsen, who won his maiden Tour de France stage.
It’s been a massive Tour for this team. We worked super-hard. It’s been a tough Tour we believe it was possible; I’m so happy. I knew I had good legs.
We just had to wait, and today was the day.
I knew Wout [Van Aert] was coming close, and I also knew the finishing line.
I knew I had to make some positions, and it was good I could pass Mads [Pedersen]. I am going to cry on television.
Having experienced defeat in the Tour de France, I can say, “I know what it’s like. So close so many times, but today was the day. Today was fantastic. Philipsen commented after the race, “I can’t believe it.”
The effort put forth to achieve this success was enormous. I’m relieved that people still held out hope that it could happen.
Despite the fact that the man in yellow seemed unscathed, his team’s firepower was significantly reduced due to the crashes on a day when Primo Rogli had already dropped out of the race.
A wave of panic spread across the peloton after Jumbo-setback, Visma’s making the final fifty kilometres a mad dash.
Amid all this upheaval, Philipsen eventually put his reputation on the line by wagering a win or loss.
