(Boulder, CO – September 22, 2020) StagesⓇ Cycling congratulates Tadej Pogačar on his historic Tour de France win. In his first Tour, the 21-year-old Slovenian won three stages and clinched the White Jersey for best young rider, the Polka Dot Jersey for best climber, and the Malliot Jaune for overall victory, becoming the first rider to take home all three overall jerseys since Eddy Merckx in 1969.
