Rein Taaramäe elected cyclist of the year in Estonia

Rein Taaramäe was elected by the Estonian Cycling Federation as the country's best rider of 2021. Rein is rewarded for his remarkable season, during which he made history for the team on numerous fronts... Congratulations Rein!

In June, he became national champion of the time trial. It was the first time a rider of the team earned a national champion jersey in this discipline.
In late August, Taaramäe conquered stage 3 of the Vuelta a Espana atop Picon Blanco. A historic achievement on the team's first ever participation to the event.
To top it off, Rein's stage win earned him the leader's jersey. For the first time ever on a Grand Tour, a rider of Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert was leading the general classification. The 34-year-old kept his position for two stages, then contributed in Odd Christian Eiking's own red dream that lasted an additional 7 days.
A worthy winner.
