What is this towel round the neck marginal gain? Not tried that one yet.
Supposedly Pogacar has been prepping hard for the final TT, clearly with the watts to back it up too.
A summary of an interview with Mikel Bjerg:
They spend days reconing the ITT accompanied by Mikkel Bjerg (3x U23 ITT world champion) with whom Pogacar rode the stage numerous times.
They found at least 25 seconds on the flat part and Pogacar and Bjerg has trained ITT together this season.
They experimented with bike changes in advance during the recon so UAE didn't spend hours today experimenting like Jumbo did.
All season Pogacar's ITT bike has been set up in regs to seat height and BB angle etc to be identical to his roadbike (Something Bjerg always have done) to ensure a smooth transition. Bjerg pointed out that the difference in bikesetup for Roglic was noticeable.
He was also Slovenian Cyclocross champion in 2018, which explains everything of course.
