Primoz Roglic was on time

Like last year, Primoz Roglic is the first red jersey of the Vuelta. The Slovenian took advantage of a 7.1 km time trial in Burgos to take the lead in the overall standings. 14th, Romain Bardet is the first French.

Olympic champion in the discipline, Primoz Roglic once again shone in the time trial. He won the first stage of the Vuelta by covering the 7.1 km of a course laid out in San Burgos in just 8’32 ”. Starting last thanks to his status as the defending champion, the Slovenian cut off six seconds from Alex Aranburu Deba’s time. For a long time, the Spaniard had kept the reference time thanks to an excellent second half of time.

Primoz Roglic is therefore the first wearer of the red jersey. Like last year. After his second place in the Tour de France and before bringing the red jersey to Madrid, the native of Trbovlje had raised his arms in Arrate after a mid-mountain stage.

Primoz Roglic was therefore on time for this prologue which saw several favorites such as Richard Carapaz or Egan Bernal finish more than 25 seconds behind. On the French side, Romain Bardet achieved the 14th time with only 17 seconds behind the winner of the day. Clément Champoussin achieved the 19th time, Florian Sénéchal the 36th, and Arnaud Démare the 47th.
