UAE-Team Emirates' Tadej Pogacar has become the youngest winner ever of the Tour of California. The Slovenian successfully defended the overall lead in the last stage of the American race.

Pogacar won the Queen Stage of the race and at the last day of competition arrived to the finish line with the peloton, confirming the overall victory of the race. The 20-year-old became the youngest victor of the race and keeps showing that he is one of the most promising riders in the peloton.

"Today was amazing, and it has been all week: I'd particularly like to thank all the teammates and the staff," Pogacar commented after the finish line. "My team worked very hard every day and this yellow jersey is not just for me but for the whole of UAE Team Emirates.

"The Mt. Baldy stage was the key moment for me at this Tour of California, but this victory took the whole week to build up to. It's the most beautiful victory of my career, and now I'm just going to focus on building and progressing as a rider."
