In case you'd missed it, Tadej Pogačar is having a pretty good 2024 so far. He has only raced six times, but has won thrice, and finished on the podium twice more. At the Volta a Catalunya this week, the UAE Team Emirates rider won back-to-back mountain top finishes, just underlining how much better he is than the rest of the field.

It leaves the rest of the field with pretty slim pickings. Mikel Landa (Soudal Quick-Step) said the quiet bit out loud this week: "Unfortunately, Pogačar is here, and that means victory will be really difficult."
