The Spaniard outsprinted Mohoric at the end of a 165.8km stage from Brezice to Krsko.
“Bauhaus and his team were too strong in the first stage, but today there were only about 30 of us and was a little bit easier to get in the front”, said Aberasturi.
“I had good legs, but I’s still suffering on the last climb before the finish, then Emirates kept a strong pace. I follow Trentin up to 200 m to the finish line, then went full gas and won the race. I’m very happy, I had a lot of podiums this year, but this is my first victory.”
Tadej Pogacar rolled in 19th in the same time as the winner to retain the overall lead.
