"I am so happy to take the win, it was not the original plan" - Terrific Tadej Pogacar makes it a quartet of Catalunya stage wins

Tadej Pogacar leaves the 2024 Volta a Catalunya will four stage wins, three jerseys, a second place on the opening stage and of course, overall victory. A truly dominant showing from the UAE Team Emirates leader.

"I am so happy to take the win, it was not the original plan," Pogacar reflected in his post-race interview having successfully made it a quarter of stage wins on Sunday afternoon. "Today we tried to go with Marc Soler, he decided himself to go [on] the first lap on the climb and he did actually a super good job. I was just trying to follow the wheels and trying to stay in the front all of the time."

Ultimately that move by Soler didn't stick, with a reduced bunch entering the finale for a sprint finish. Proving he win stages in any manner, Pogacar powered his way to the win once again.

"João Almeida set a really good pace on the climb and we were a small group on the front," Pogacar recaps. "João made a good attack in the last small climb and he almost come to the finish. I wish that he would arrive but I am happy that I could take the win instead."
