Thanks to your votes, Jonas Vingegaard's incredible individual time-trial on stage 16. One of the great performances of the Dane's career, it's fair to say a more than worthy winner.
The battle for the award was incredibly close however. 799 voters in total pledged their support to the rider of their choice with just 23 votes separating the winner Vingegaard and runner-up, Primoz Roglic's stage 20 time-trial that gave him victory at the Giro d'Italia.

In total, 35.79 percent of the votes went to Vingegaard with Roglic securing himself 32.92 percent. With the award being incredibly closely fought, Tadej Pogacar narrowly finished in third thanks to his epic victory at the Tour of Flanders, beating out Mathieu van der Poel's World Championship victory by just 1.12 percent (9 votes).
Just one of a number of standout performances from Vingegaard en route to his second successive Maillot Jaune victory, the Jumbo-Visma's time-trial on stage 16 will live long in the memory. Not someone renowned as a specialist in the discipline, his dominant performance was something truly special. With the Dane in yet another nip-and-tuck battle for yellow with Tadej Pogacar, most so-called experts actually expected Vingegaard to lose time on this day. Instead, he completely obliterated the field, Pogacar included.
