The 24-year-old UAE Team Emirates leader has been in Colombia for the last couple of weeks, riding Rigoberto Urán’s Giro di Rigo event and then relaxing and enjoying his off-season with his partner and fellow pro rider Urška Žigart.

Pogačar can look back on another successful season. He may not have won a third consecutive Tour de France but he remains the best rider in the men’s peloton, again ending the season as the world’s number-one ranked rider.

With another 16 victories to his name – including Il Lombardia, Strade BIanche, and three stages of the Tour de France – comparisons to Eddy Merckx still stand.

A new generation of riders is emerging in Pogačar’s slipstream but he seems destined to go on to win at least five editions of the Tour de France and become be one of the greats of the sport. Yet he is doing it all with nonchalance and a smile on his face.
