Tadej Pogacar secures second in the Tour de France with help from Carthago

Despite a serious accident in the Spring, professional cyclist Tadej Pogacar achieved second place in the world’s biggest bike race the Tour de France, with a little help from his Carthago motorhome. The Slovenian rider’s preparations for the Tour de France were hampered by the broken left wrist he suffered in the accident, yet he still managed to win two stages in the 2023 race and finish second overall, pushing eventual winner Jonas Vingegaard all the way.

As in previous years, Tadej was supported by Carthago, who gave him use of a c-compactline motorhome, which is often his home from home while training and racing.

Tadej Pogačar’s motorhome is a real unique item thanks to its striking livery: It shows the cyclist in a winner’s pose and an oversize autograph. The professional cyclist and the motorhome complement each other perfectly. Both are slim and top fit. With its habitation width of just 2.12 metres, the A-Class Carthago c-compactline has a wiry construction, and is lightweight and energy-saving thanks to its Super Lightweight design. Thanks to the AL-KO low frame chassis, fully-fledged double floor and high-stability habitation with the Liner class technology, the c-compactline can also cope with long and difficult stages – just like world class athlete Tadej Pogačar during the Tour de France and his countless other successfully completed races.

Among other things, the cycling star’s close and long-term connection with Carthago and its employees was evident last year: To mark the occasion of a motorhome handover, Tadej Pogačar cycled from the Carthago factory in Odranci to the recently inaugurated second Slovenian location in Ormož with more than 200 Carthago employees.
