Tour de France 2022: Full Schedule, Stages, Route, Length, TV Channel & Live Stream

Is it too early to start the Tadej Pogačar vs Eddy Merckx comparisons? Probably not at this point.

At just 23 years old, Pogačar already has two Tour de France overall titles to his name. He is the youngest cyclist to win consecutive tours. And Merckx himself calls the Slovenian star “campionissimo”, the champion of champions.

“It is becoming increasingly difficult to find the words to describe what this young man is doing. It’s spectacular and impressive. Pogačar is a campionissimo,” Merckx told Gazzetta dello Sport. “Considering he’s only 23, it’s incredible what he can do. There’s a tendency these days to start winning at a younger age, but what he’s doing is unique.”

Should Pogačar win again in the standings in 2022, he would be only the sixth cyclist to win the race three years in a row.
