Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-Quickstep), world champion and winner of the second stage of the Tour de France and the Flèche Brabançonne, won his second consecutive French trophy. Last year, he achieved the double by also winning the international trophy, which he must leave this year to Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma), the world number 1 champion of Slovenia at the end of the season and who also won (among others) the Tour of Spain and Liège-Bastogne-Liège, after taking second place in the Tour de France.
Logical choice in the eyes of the runners themselves
“I went through the list of previous winners and saw some big names“, Roglic commented.”It is a huge honor. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who voted for me. I understand it was a jury of journalists from all over the world. That’s why he really touches me“.
Julian Alaphilippe agrees with the jury’s decision. “Roglic fully deserves this trophy. Last year, I had a big, big season to win it. It is in the logic of things that he returns to him this year!”
Wout Van Aert and Remco Evenepoel were also among the 15 “finalists” for this trophy, awarded on the basis of votes from international cycling journalists. But we will have to wait a little longer to find a successor to Philippe Gilbert, the last Belgian winner of this World Golden Bike, in 2011.
