Vuelta: Pogačar Wins his Third Stage and Rides Onto the Podium in the GC

UAE Team Emirates (Spain) - Press Release: The Slovenian is also the new white jersey.

UAE Team Emirates’ king of the climbs, Tadej Pogačar, blew away the competition in the mountains today to take his third stage win at La Vuelta and in doing so not only secured a place on the podium in Madrid, but claimed the coveted white jersey as the best young rider in the race.

Pogačar went into stage 20 in 5th position in the GC and needed to do something special to move up the rankings. With 38kms to go, as the main contenders rode the penultimate climb of the day, the 20-year-old Slovenian did just that – attacking with such ferocity that none of his rivals could respond. It was a courageous move by the youngest rider in the race, and it paid dividends, as he soloed away to the line (photo Bettini)  in what will go down in the history books as a masterclass in Grand Tour bike racing.
