The young Slovenian from UAE Team Emirates takes overall.
After a winning display on stage 4 yesterday on the steep climb to Altea, Tadej Pogačar has today cemented his victory in the Vuelta Valenciana. With a relatively short final stage of 97.7 kilometres, it was destined to be a day for the sprinters. In the final kilometres UAE Team Emirates were active at the front with even race leader Pogačar pulling on the front in support of Alexander Kristoff. Fabio Jakobsen proved quickest in the dash for the line with Kristoff just behind in 4th. This result from Pogačar marks the 7th victory of the season for the UAE squad who will now turn their attention to the Tour Colombia 2.1 which gets underway on Tuesday 11th February.
Pogačar and his teammates from UAE Team Emirates face stage races atop on their Colnago V3Rs bikes equipped with Campagnolo Super Record EPS 12 Speed electronic groupset and with aerodynamic Campagnolo Bora WTO 45 wheels.
