Primoz Roglic has extended his title as overall winner of the Tour de Romandie. In the final time trial in Geneva the Slovenian put the icing on the cake. He was the only one to clock a time under twenty minutes, taking his third stage win this week. For the rider of Team Jumbo-Visma the overall victory in Romandie also means his third overall victory in a World Tour stage race this season. Earlier this year, Roglic won the UAE Tour and Tirreno-Adriatico.
For Roglic, these victories are his sixth and seventh win of the season respectively. For Team Jumbo-Visma it’s the twelfth and thirteenth victory. In Tony Martin, the yellow-black formation had a second rider in the top five of the stage in Geneva. The German finished fifth. Steven Kruijswijk also rode a solid time trial and retained his sixth place in the overall standings. Roglic also won the points classification.
“I am very happy with my third stage victory and my overall victory”, Roglic said. “This victory is a team achievement. The entire team was fantastic this week. It shows how we have grown as a team. That’s really nice to see. I really enjoyed it. I had not raced since Tirreno-Adriatico and I trained on altitude in April. These results have come a bit unexpected so I am very satisfied. This was the perfect preparation for the Giro.”
