Roglič vs Pogačar: Who Is the Better Climber?

With the fantastic 2021 WorldTour cycling season behind us, one major question I’m left with, and one that has been asked by many readers - who is the better Grand Tour rider this year between the two Slovenian superstars Tadej Pogačar and Primož Roglič?

LOMBARDIA’21 BREAKDOWN: Pogačar Undisputed Superstar!

The curtain has dropped on the 2021 season with Il Lombardia... And it dropped with a loud thud. Tadej Pogačar added to his Tour de France and Liège-Bastogne-Liège wins to put his name up with the top men in cycling history. Spencer Martin breaks down the 'Race of the Falling Leaves' to give us 'Ten Takeaways' for the end of the season.

LOMBARDIA’21: Pogačar Best in Bergamo!

Double Tour de France winner, Tadej Pogačar (Jumbo-Visma) attacked with more than 30 kilometres to go, local boy, Fausto Masnada (Deceuninck - Quick-Step), joined him for the two to battle for the win. The chasers had no chance. In the sprint Pogačar had the edge over Masnada. Adam Yates (INEOS Grenadiers) was third.

TOUR’21 Stage 20: Wonderful Wout, Tour for Tadej!

Saturday's time trial went to Jumbo-Visma's Wout van Aert, taking his second 2021 Tour stage victory after the Mont Ventoux win. His teammate Jonas Vingegaard was second on the stage and held his runner-up place overall. Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) finished safely to make sure of his overall victory in Paris on Sunday.

TOUR’21 Stage 18: Double Pogačar Domination!

Two stages in a row and the King of the Mountains jersey to add to the yellow and the white, yes, that's the Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) 2021 Tour domination. In a repeat of the finalé of stage 17, the Slovenian jumped in the last uphill metres for the stage win... and made it look easy.

TOUR’21 Stage 17: Pogačar Pounces on Portet!

After a game of cat and mouse between Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates), Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma) and Richard Carapaz (INEOS Grenadiers), the yellow jersey despatched his closest rivals for the stage win on the Col du Portet. Vingegaard was second and now has 4 seconds on Carapaz on the overall standings.

TOUR’21 Stage 8: Incroyable Pogačar Takes Tour Control

Dylan Teuns may have won stage 8, but the 'hero of the day' and maybe the 2021 Tour de France was Tadej Pogačar. The young Slovenian crossed from what was left of the peloton to the front of the race, a gap of over 6 minutes. Teuns was the only rider he didn't catch before the finish in Le Grand-Bornand.
