Tadej speaks little Italian, but he understands it well. Ernesto Colnago does not speak English, but the feeling between two champions in their respective fields was born immediately. The Slovenian champion, third in the last Vuelta of Spain, wanted to greet the builder of his bikes before going to Monaco, where he will reside in the coming years, to attend to some bureaucratic matters related to citizenship. “My Colnago is beautiful, it has the perfect sizes,” Pogacar confessed to Colnago, who with the usual enthusiasm advised him: “never change the measurements, never change them you are well placed in the saddle go very well”. Tadej, who gave himself a week’s holiday in Malta and then in his Slovenia, gave Colnago the white jersey won at the Vuelta of Spain with a special dedication. Colnago has dedicated copies of two books to him, one of which tells the fantastic story of the Colnago company, founded in 1954.
