"(It's) quite simple," the 2019 Vuelta a Espana champion told Colombian newspaper El Tiempo

"We want to win the Tour with the team and the best one will win at the end."

"It's always an honest race especially three week races so yeah, looking forward to the start."

Despite Movistar failing at the attempt in recent years, both Jumbo-Visma and Ineos are opting for a three-leader approach for this year's Tour de France. 

Ineos' two-pronged, let-the-road-decide strategy in 2019 ultimately proved successful with Bernal clearly in the better form and Geraint Thomas finishing strongly in second overall. 

Earlier this month, a number of teams confirmed with Cyclingnews a mid-season transfer for Froome was raised with them while in contract discussions. The switch was allegedly prompted by the four-time Tour de France champion's dissatisfaction with Bernal publicly stating he will not sacrifice his own chances.

While Froome's future beyond 2020 is at this stage unconfirmed, the mid-season switch is on the back burner. 

The Brit appeared to toe the Ineos triumvarite party line in a recent interview with Sky Sports Italy with a sentiment similar to Roglič's. 

Ineos opting for three leaders at this year's Tour de France
"I don't know how we'll do it...joke!," Chris Froome told Sky Sports Italy yesterday.

"I am ready for the Tour, also to be a leader. The important thing is that at the end of the day the team won, it is the thing that matters. Then the road will decide the rest.

"Three leaders? I don't know how we will do it...joke! We will find the solution and respect our goals. Everyone will want to win, but the team counts."

In the interview with El Tiempo, Roglič said the only way to defeat reigning Tour champion Egan Bernal is simple. 

"Trying to be (better) than he is! We will see. (it will) definitely be a totally crazy race...already from the beginning with some big mountains, with some decisive moments and we'll just see how it goes.

"We'll be aware of the problems coming into the third week we'll all know where our position is."

A strong time triallist, the Slovenian said if the standings were still close, the Stage 20, 36km race against the clock could prove decisive. 

"In the front (end of the race), not losing the time and looking to the time trial, looking for my best experience at the end, with who is winning and who is on the podium."

Roglič is also not discounting Froome to turn up at the Tour in top form. 

"He will arrive in the best shape possible. He has a lot of experience, he has won many times, he will be prepared for it."

And the crowds will not bother Roglič. 

"Hopefully there is a race. For me, it makes no influence - with the public, without the public, whatever. Of course we are hoping for the public but...(you) have to be happy with the race."
