“It was quite a fast day, it was hard but the guys again did a really good job,” Roglic said, thanking his teammates for their support in the final climb.
“I was always in a good position and so could do a nice sprint, so I’m very happy.”
With his victory, Roglic erased all the doubts surrounding his form following his withdrawal from the Critérium du Dauphiné earlier this month because of injuries he sustained in a crash.
“I’m coming back,” Roglic said. “We can see that I can race and every day I feel a little better. It’s nice to be able to ride again. I already got proof that I was ready for the start. Now we need to continue the whole team with good job.”
