Unsurprisingly, the three Grand Tour winners of 2021 topped the standings for Velogames Stage Race Rider of the Year. Primoz Roglic (6197 stage race points) took first place with a dominant ride at the Vuelta, in addition to GC victory at Itzulia Basque Country and three stage wins at Paris-Nice, putting him ahead of his Tour-winning compatriot Tadej Pogacar (5026 stage race points) and Giro victor Egan Bernal (4847 stage race points).

Read a special preview extract of A PILGRIM’S PROGRESS, an essay featured in The Road Book Cycling Almanack 2021, where author Daniel Friebe provides a lens into psychology of Primož Roglič as he recovered from disappointment at the Tour de France to triumph in Tokyo and La Vuelta.
