I am not one to quickly jump on any upcoming rider’s bandwagon, but I thought Pogacar was special from the start. Just something about him. He rides with passion, determination, skill and confidence, yet also with humility and constraint. He’s a nice kid, as he’s shown on podiums and during interviews. You can tell that it’s not just work, but he’s having fun. Pogacar has also proven that he has an exceptional technical understanding of the sport for his young age.

It’s hard to compare athletes from different eras. Sports change, competition and technology improves. So, whether or not Pogacar ultimately bests Merckx records, he’s likely to be at the top of the sport of road cycling for years to come.
