Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma): “It’s a great feeling to win this race, and to be accompanied by another Slovenian is even better. It’s really nice for our cycling. I just tried to finish today again. We’re writing a bit of history. I’ll only know once I finish my career [if it’s the beginning before more successes]. But to win one Grand Tour...
Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma): “I’m just relieved. It was the last really hard day in the mountains. A Slovenian won again, it’s nice. The closer we get to the end, the harder it gets. I stayed in my position and I’m really happy. It was a really hard day for us. I crashed quite hard yesterday. But we’ve showed in the past days we are really strong...
Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma): “It was another hard day and the team was super strong again. Yesterday our team pulled from km 0, everyone a bloc to control the breakaway. Today when Astana attacked in the penultimate climb, I was alone but Neilson [Powless] was up the front ready to wait for me. And in the end, it’s on me. I also had good legs and we need to continue...
Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma): “It was a hard day. I made a mistake. I shouldn’t have where I was, I should have been in the front. The team saved me with a big effort. They just went full gas from the very beginning and that was it for the rest of the day. We can see our team did a really big effort from the beginning. In the end, we couldn’t anymore so other...
Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma): “It was a hard day with a long last climb. And a good day for us in the end. [Miguel Angel Lopez] attacked really really strong. I was looking at Valverde and when there was a gap I didn’t jump. When I saw Valverde was having a bit of difficulty I went and I bridged the gap. I don’t fear the last week. When I did the Tour de France...
Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma): “Sepp was obviously really strong and it was really nice to have him take the stage win. I had good legs myself so it was ok [for Kuss not to wait]. I just followed [when Valverde attacks]. He is the closest rival and when he goes, it’s nice if I can follow. It was a hard attack but it went ok for me. It was a really hard climb, full gas...
Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma): “I wasn’t really involved in the crash. I was there but I didn’t crash. For us GC guys it’s the main menace, especially in sprint stages, we have to be up there but we want to take as few risks as possible. I don’t know the climbs in the coming days. I didn’t ride them before. I just saw the profiles and all the...
Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma): “It was a big fight and it was a nice day for Slovenian cycling. I didn’t expect to open such differences. I expected a big fight and it was a hard climb that delivered a good finish for me. I think both the time and the moral advantages are important. But the time is what counts in cycling. It’s nice to open bigger differences....
