Watch 20-Year-Old Tadej Pogacar’s Stage 20 Victory
Working his way onto the Vuelta podium
Saturday’s 20th stage was won by another Slovenian Tadej Pogacar, who not only secured the white jersey as best under-25’s rider, but climbed to third place in the overall standings with his third stage victory here.
“Again a good day for us, a good day for Slovenian cycling, this is really nice, I’m really happy with it,” commented Roglic.
Pogacar of the UAE Emirates Team is the breakout star of the Vuelta, and deprived Colombia’s Miguel Angel Lopez, one of the great animators of this tour, of the white jersey.
The youngster attacked from within an elite group of riders with 30km to race and produced a relentless show of power. He and his compatriot Roglic need only finish Sunday’s run into Madrid that is fully expected to finish in a mass bunch sprint, to climb onto the podium.
