Pogačar wins in style at Basque Country

Tadej Pogačar put in a determined performance to take stage 3 of the Itzulia Basque Country (167.7 km starting from Amurrio and finishing in Ermualde): at the end of an intense head-to-head, the UAE Team Emirates star outfoxed Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) in the battle for stage success.
Brandon McNulty put in a very solid ride to come home in 10th place (+18 ”), now 3rd in the general classification (+30” from Primoz Roglic) in which Tadej Pogačar moved up to 2nd position (+20 ”from his compatriot). The winner of the 2020 Tour de France is now the new leader of the youth ranking.
This marks the twenty-second career success for Pogačar (first at Itzulia Basque Country), and the eighth win of the season for UAE Team Emirates.
