Tadej Pogačar will only compete twice before this year’s Tour de France, which begins in just four weeks' time. 

The two-time race winner, who is recovering from a broken wrist suffered at Liège-Bastogne-Liège, will only take part in the Slovenian National Championships ahead of the event, riding the road race and the individual time trial on the last weekend of June.
