Roglic retains overall lead in Vuelta a España after nervous fourth stage

Team Jumbo-Visma has navigated leader Primoz Roglic through the fourth stage of the Vuelta a España without any problems. The yellow and black formation was riding very attentively all day. The fast and nervous stage finished in a bunch sprint. Roglic retained the overall lead.

The stage was controlled by the sprinter teams, who got one of the few sprint opportunities today. A breakaway therefore barely got much of a lead. At one moment some teams tried to split the peloton apart in the strong winds, but that did not work out. Team Jumbo-Visma remained grouped around Roglic and did not get surprised.

According to the Slovenian, it was far from an easy and calm stage. “It was definitely not an easy day. There was a lot of tailwind. As a result, it was a very fast stage and the peloton rode very nervously. We had to remain focused and alert and we couldn’t afford to weaken for a moment. The team once again did a good job to keep me in the front. We cannot afford to make mistakes and certainly not in a stage like this. We have to stay sharp.”
