Primoz Roglic tops WorldTour standings


Jumbo-Visma finished an almost perfect season with Primoz Roglic on the top of the UCI WorldTour standings.

Roglic won four of five stage races he started in 2019 — including his first grand tour win at the Vuelta a Espana and third at the Giro d’Italia.

The Slovenian finished his season at Il Lombardia, where he crossed the line in the seventh position and will finish the year at the top of the UCI world ranking.

“We were very motivated to win here and we showed that,” said Roglic at the end of Il Lombardia. “When I’m in shape and up to speed, it’s hard to beat me. I can look back on a good season and I am happy that I was able to finish this season with a victory. The fact that I am the rider with the most UCI victories this season is nice, even if they are just statistics.

“This was my most successful season to date. Last week, I also showed that I am able to compete for the win in one-day races. But above all, I am most happy with the fact that I am finishing the season as number one in the world.”
