On the day I rode to a big victory in yellow at the top of the Super Planches des Belles Filles on stage 7 of the 2022 Tour de France I wore a special pair of DMT shoes. After the stage, I announced the start of our cancer foundation. The shoes are from artist Caitlin Fielder and painted by hand (www.caitlinfielderfineart.com). The colors symbolize all of the cancers that affect us. The shoes were auctioned to raise funds for the foundation and raised $7,000 to help promote our research. —Tadej
We are proud to announce the launch of the Tadej Pogačar Cancer Research Foundation. What makes our work different? We are focused on cancer metabolism, which we believe is key to fighting the disease, with our recent work showing immense promise. Tadej is excited to launch the Foundation to promote and support this new area of cancer research.
