Primoz Roglic ‘didn’t have the legs’ to follow Evenepoel on first summit finish of Vuelta a España

Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) appeared to have dismissed the pre-race doubts that followed his early exit from the Tour de France with his victory on the first uphill finish of the Vuelta a España, but the first mountaintop finish flipped the narrative again.

The three-time Vuelta champion had calmly handed the leader’s red jersey over to a breakaway rider on stage 5, but by the top of the Pico Jano on stage 6 it was on the shoulders of Remco Evenepoel (QuickStep-AlphaVinyl), who looks a major danger to his chances of a fourth straight title.
