Pogacar Completes Hat-Trick to take Paris-Nice Crown, Almeida Seals Big Weekend with Podium
• Final stage win in Nice for Slovenian, Almeida podiums as UAE shine in Italy •
 
13th March 2023:  Tadej Pogacar claimed the final stage of Paris-Nice in splendid fashion taking an emphatic solo stage win and finishing in first place in the overall General Classification.

Pogacar: “It was always my dream to win Paris-Nice. The fact I did it is incredible. They say sometimes that attack is the best defence. I really know these roads well as I live quite close by and I train on them regularly.  I knew exactly how my legs were on the final climb and how much I could spend to get to the top and I managed to judge it well.”
