Slovenian cyclist Tadej Pogacar hopes to celebrate a party in Italy on Wednesday with his girlfriend Urska Zigart. The two lovers will compete for their country at the European Championships in the mixed team time trial. Pogacar (22) and Zigart (24) are part of the Slovenian team of six riders.
In the mixed team time trial over 22.4 kilometers, the three men from each country first come into action. As soon as the second man has crossed the finish line, the three women start. The finishing time of the second woman counts for the classification.
Pogacar won the Tour de France for the second time in a row this year. The Team Emirates climber took bronze in the road race at the Olympic Games in Japan. His girlfriend Zigart rides for the Australian team BikeExchange. She became national time trial champion last year.
Jos van Emden, Koen Bouwman, Bauke Mollema, Demi Vollering, Amy Pieters and Floortje Mackaij will ride the mixed team time trial on behalf of the Netherlands.
