Tadej Pogačar is the best bike rider in the world. He sits atop the UCI's points table, has won the most races of any rider this year, the second year in a row that he has won the most, although this year it is outright. 

The Slovenian can win across almost every terrain and type of race, even hinting that he wants to try his hand at gravel next year. Remember when he turned up at the Tour of Flanders back in April and almost won on his first attempt? He managed to finish fourth in a two-up sprint, but he will be back. Aside from races for pure sprinters, there is seemingly no limit to what he could aim for, from Milan-San Remo to Paris-Roubaix via the the World Championships.
