Vuelta a España 2021 standings: The final results from the Spanish Grand Tour
Who's wearing red, green, polka dot and white in the Vuelta a España?
The Vuelta a España 2021 has now concluded and Primož Roglič has been crowned the overall winner.
The Slovenian confirmed his third consecutive victory with a dominant display to take the win in the final time trial on stage 21, beating Magnus Cort (EF Education-Nippo).
Roglič wins the Vuelta with a huge 4-42 gap over second place Enric Mas (Movistar), and 7-40 over third place Jack Haig (Bahrain Victorious).
Two of the other key classifications were decided before the final time trial; Fabio Jakobsen (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) sealed the points competition and Michael Storer was crowned king of the mountains.
The best young rider jersey changed hands as Gino Mäder (Bahrain Victorious) leapfrogged Egan Bernal (Ineos Grenadiers) on stage 20, with the Swiss rider able to confirm the competition in the final time trial.
In the team contests, Bahrain Victorious sealed victory after targetting the competition in the latter part of the race.

Hi, I'm one of Cycling Weekly's content writers for the web team responsible for writing stories on racing, tech, updating evergreen pages as well as the weekly email newsletter. Proud Yorkshireman from the UK's answer to Flanders, Calderdale, go check out the cobbled climbs!
I started watching cycling back in 2010, before all the hype around London 2012 and Bradley Wiggins at the Tour de France. In fact, it was Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck's battle in the fog up the Tourmalet on stage 17 of the Tour de France.
It took me a few more years to get into the journalism side of things, but I had a good idea I wanted to get into cycling journalism by the end of year nine at school and started doing voluntary work soon after. This got me a chance to go to the London Six Days, Tour de Yorkshire and the Tour of Britain to name a few before eventually joining Eurosport's online team while I was at uni, where I studied journalism. Eurosport gave me the opportunity to work at the world championships in Harrogate back in the awful weather.
After various bar jobs, I managed to get my way into Cycling Weekly in late February of 2020 where I mostly write about racing and everything around that as it's what I specialise in but don't be surprised to see my name on other news stories.
When not writing stories for the site, I don't really switch off my cycling side as I watch every race that is televised as well as being a rider myself and a regular user of the game Pro Cycling Manager. Maybe too regular.
My bike is a well used Specialized Tarmac SL4 when out on my local roads back in West Yorkshire as well as in northern Hampshire with the hills and mountains being my preferred terrain.
