Roglic walks in Romandía before the Giro: 3 stages and general

The Slovenian won his third partial victory in the Swiss round after beating in the final time trial to Campenaerts, recent record holder of the hour.


Primoz Roglic adds and follows. The Slovenian sent a new message to all his rivals before the Giro d'Italia: he is one of the runners in better shape at the moment. The leader of the Jumbo-Visma was awarded the overall of the Tour de Romandia in a big way, winning three stages: two mountain sprint and the final time trial, flat and 16 kilometers, which closed the Swiss round.

Roglic no has had rival during the six stages in Romandía. He showed himself to be the strongest in all the fields and defended his leader from the second day without rivals against the likes of Geraint Thomas or Rui Costa. In the time trial of this Sunday, Victor Campaenaerts marked the reference during a good part of the working day. Important men of the general as Thomas himself, did not have his best day and Roglic, wearing the yellow jersey, beat none other than the record man of the hour by 13 seconds.

No doubt, the authority with which he has imposed in this Tour de Romandía (49 seconds over Rui Costa and 1:12 'over Thomas) is a direct message for the rest of favorites facing the Giro d'Italia, since this is the third major victory in World Tour races for Roglic in this 2019, or what is the same: he has won the three tests in which he has participated in this course. The Slovenian adds Romandía to his record of this season along with Tirreno-Adriatico and the UAE Tour. Names like those of Dumoulin, Simon Yates, Mikel Landa or Nibali, among others, they will already have taken good note of it ...
