Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma): “In cycling, there is always risk, a lot of things can happen. But it went well today. I enjoyed it. It’s a super nice day for me and the whole team. I didn’t think anything, I just went with [Egan Bernal]. It’s a race! Then I was thinking a little bit… Wow, this is quite far, with still a hard climb in the end. But it was going well and we showed real racing. I just rode as hard as possible on the last climb. At that point, Egan didn’t follow anymore so I went alone. I think it’s my greatest showing in La Vuelta, yes. I was enjoying it with all the support. Only the weather wasn’t the best, but it was a super nice day. The gap on GC is never big enough, but it’s a nice one, we deserve it. No matter what, tomorrow we have a queen stage coming, so we’ll see if it’s enough.”
