Tadej Pogacar is, without a doubt, one of the most coveted cyclists in the world peloton after winning the Tour de France in 2020 and 2021 at the age of 22. An incredible trajectory that has made the UAE shield the Slovenian cyclist with a new contract until 2027, when Pogacar will be 29 years old.

More impressive than the duration of Pogacar's contract is the salary that the Slovenian cyclist will receive thanks to this renewal. According to calculations made by La Gazzetta dello Sport, the total amount of Pogacar's renovation reaches 36 million euros, so the Slovenian cyclist would receive a whopping 6 million euros a year, something unaffordable for many squads of the peloton and That would put a brake on the interest of other teams such as Ineos, Jumbo-Visma or Israel Start-Up Nation when signing him.

In this way, Tadej Pogacar becomes the highest paid cyclist in the peloton, beating Chris Froome, who receives 5.5 million euros in the Israel Start-Up Nation as reported by the newspaper L'Équipe last March, and also at Slovak Peter Sagan, while other figures in the squad such as Geraint Thomas, Egan Bernal and Michal Kwiatkowski earn 3.5, 2.8 and 2.5 million euros per year per season respectively.
