He sure likes winning in France these days.
With Van Aert and Van der Poel skipping the Tour this year, he might win a few more stages in France this year! The problem with Pedersen is that he is just a small step below those 2 and so it's harder for him to get those big wins but I'd like to see him win a couple of monuments in the future to go with his world title!
Voted Danish Male Cyclist of the year, 2023.

That seems a bit ridiculous. I know he had his best season yet in terms of consistency and that he was up there in pretty much every race he entered, but he didn't win any big races, unlike another Dane, and "only" podiumed one major event. In many seasons that would have been more than enough to deserve the award, but not in 2023.
