When world number one Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates), after finishing 12th in Wednesday’s Flèche Wallonne, hurried home to Slovenia with his girlfriend Urska Zigart because his mother had died of cancer, it was reported by his employer that the 23-year-old double Tour de France king might show up in Liège on Saturday to defend last season’s triumph in Liège-Bastogne-Liège.
But that plan never came to fruition, for Pogacar, who with seven victories is the most winning rider this year, chose in the difficult moment to stay with his girlfriend, who rides himself as a professional for the Australian Team BikeExchange.
