It only feels like yesterday since Tadej Pogacar shocked us all by winning the time trial to La Planche des Belles Filles. Primoz Roglic had an advantage of close to a minute and it was an expected formality that day. Instead Pogacar blitzed the field, besting all other riders by at least 80 seconds and putting nearly 2 minutes into Roglic. We can only dream of another exciting finale to the 2021 Tour de France!
