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.
