Tadej Pogačar: Tour de France 2020 Champion

The amazing tale of the UAE Team Emirates Tour de France 2020 journey ended on the Champs-Elysses in Paris, with Tadej Pogačar claiming the ultimate prize of victory. Pogačar, still just 21 years old (the youngest winner since 1904)  also claimed the polka dot and the best young rider classification, as well as having won three stages (9th, 15th and 20th).
The success of the Emirati team is also topped off by the triumph of Alexander Kristoff in Nice who won the opening stage of the Tour, with the Norwegian wearing the yellow jersey on stage 2. The heights of glory reached by UAE Team Emirates in France represent the pinnacle of the young sporting history of the United Arab Emirates.
The final stage was won by Sam Bennett (Deceuninck-Quick Step) ahead of world champion Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo);  with a solid 4th place going to Alexander Kristoff.
