Tadej Pogačar has won his second Tour de France in a row
Slovenian powerhouse Tadej Pogačar officially claimed his second Tour de France victory on Sunday after dominating the field for most of the three weeks of the race. The 22-year-old Pogačar took the overall standings on a rainy eighth stage and never left the lead rider’s yellow jersey, winning three of the 21 stages of the race.
Pogačar achieved an unexpected victory last year after his rival Primož Roglič failed in the penultimate time trial stage. At the time he was the youngest Tour winner in 116 years.
“I can’t compare the two Tour de France victories, I can’t say which one is more beautiful,” Pogačar said, according to The Associated Press. “This time, I took the yellow jersey a lot earlier. It was totally different.”

Twenty-four-year-old Danish driver Jonas Vingegaard finished second overall, and 28-year-old Ecuadorian star Richard Carapaz finished third. Carapaz is the first Ecuadorian to finish in the top three in the history of the Tour. Pogačar was one of the favorites to win heading into the race. Roglič, also from Slovenia, was another favorite, but suffered several accidents early in the race and retired to recover from his injuries.
Meanwhile, Mark Cavendish, 36, a native of the Isle of Man, resurrected a race that appeared to be in recession, winning four Tour stages. In doing so, Cavendish achieved a total of 34 Tour de France stage victories in his career, equaling the record set between 1969 and 1975 by Eddy Merckx, who is generally considered the greatest cyclist of all time.
Cavendish burst into tears after this year’s first Tour victory, his first in five years. He was only selected to be on the team in the last minute after another rider’s injury.
“I didn’t think he would go back to this race,” he said in an emotional post-race interview.
