Team Jumbo-Visma (Italy) - Press Release: Primoz Roglic has won Tirreno-Adriatico for the second time in his career. The 33-year-old Slovenian saw his leading position unchallenged in the flat seventh stage. With three stage wins and victory in the overall, mountain and points classification, Roglic enjoyed a successful return to the peloton.
Without Wilco Kelderman, the peloton set off for a 154-kilometre stage to and from San Benedetto del Trento. An eight-rider breakaway took a maximum four-minute lead, but was not able to hold off a steaming peloton in the closing kilometres. Jasper Philipsen again proved to be the fastest sprinter, while Roglic secured the overall victory.
After his victory in 2019, it was the second time Roglic could take home the Trident trophy. "It's great to return to the peloton in this way. My main goal was to gain race rhythm here and to suffer. I managed to do both. That I would also take three stage wins and win the final classification, I certainly did not expect," Roglic said.
