Strong performance by Vingegaard and Jorgenson in first time trial Tour de France

Strong performance by Vingegaard and Jorgenson in first time trial Tour de France

Jonas Vingegaard and Matteo Jorgenson are satisfied with their performance in the first time trial of the Tour de France. Vingegaard finished fourth in the race against the clock, while Jorgenson finished in seventh place. Remco Evenepoel won the time trial.

Wout van Aert also initially set his sights on a good result, but the Belgian had a tough time on the climb after a fast start. Van Aert had to dig deep, and eventually settled for 24th place. 

In the final hour it was up to the favorites to battle it out. After Jorgenson was 2 seconds off the top time at that time, Vingegaard set the fastest time at every intermediate point along the way. However, the Dane was  passed by Remco Evenepoel and Tadej Pogacar. At the finish, the difference was 37 and 25 seconds, respectively.

"To be honest, it was a good time trial for me," Vingegaard said after his arrival. "I'm satisfied with my performance. Especially in the first part of the time trial I felt myself in very good shape. On the climb I was able to pedal fine power. To only lose 37 seconds compared to Evenepoel, I had signed up for that beforehand. The 25-second difference with Pogacar is also playable. Of course they take time, but I expected to lose more. The course is much more suited to them. Perhaps in the high mountains it will be about minutes rather than seconds. We have to stick to and believe in our plan."

"I feel my form is improving day by day"

Jonas Vingegaard

Vingegaard doesn't forget where he came from. "As I have already indicated, anything we achieve is nice. Of course we are going for the highest possible, but losing time in the first part of the Tour was definitely calculated. I feel my form is improving day by day. I am satisfied with today's day and look forward to the rest of this Tour de France," concluded the two-time overall winner.

"I really gave everything today," Jorgenson said after his seventh-place finish. "I kind of saw the top of the climb as a first finish line. Fortunately, I then managed to recover well on the descent. On the last flat stretch I gave everything I had left in the tank. I am satisfied with this result. I came to the start of the Tour in good shape. The crash in the opening weekend didn't help that form. I felt a little off for a few days, but it's going in the right direction now. In any case, today I felt in good shape."
