Roglic claims GC lead with queen stage win in Tour of Slovenia

Primoz Roglic

Primoz Roglic (LottoNL-Jumbo) claimed the fourth stage in the Tour of Slovenia after he attacked on the final climb and defended his lead during the 20-kilometre descent to the town of Kamnik.

Roglic now leads the overall by 33 seconds over Uran and 43 over 2017 winner Rafal Majak (Bora-hansgrohe).

“The outcome is better than yesterday,” Roglic said after the stage. “I didn’t have any big tactics, I just asked the guys for the help and then I went for it. Of course it also helps that I have the advantage of the home terrain. I’m repeating myself everyday, but it’s really nice out there racing in front of all these fans. This show is for them. However, the race is not over, I’ll have to focus very hard and do my best tomorrow.”

Tour of Slovenia concludes Sunday with a 21.5km individual time trial.
