Tadej Pogacar has had an extraordinary spring however it ended abruptly in the final day of his campaign in the classics. He crashed out of Liège-Bastogne-Liège, sustaining a few fractures in his wrist which has hampered his initial plans ahead of the Tour de France. Weeks after the last one, he provides an update on the recovery.
"Finally an update on my everyday life. Been good last two weeks, exploring Monaco and surroundings, putting some hard work on rollers and taking care of my wrist," Pogacar said in an Instagram post. "Not boring life at all, the best part is I can watch Urska Zigart and cheering for her in Spain."

The Slovenian, positive as always, has been active around his place of residence in Monaco and has since returning to riding on the rollers. He was given around five weeks off the bike days after his injury, and is likely to return to riding on the road in early June. This is currently preventing him from joining his teammates who are an altitude camp in Sierra Nevada preparing for the Tour.
"I will update you all once I get back on the bike outside. But for now hard work continues in my kitchen and garden," he concluded. He's had to forego plans of travelling to a wind tunnel for aero testing and a recon of some Tour de France stages, but is likely to return to competition before the Tour, before his final preparations for the hunt of a third title.
