Roglič does it again
Another time trial and another victory for the Slovenian superstar. Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) landed a huge blow to his GC rivals. The first and second time checks showed only minimal gains in terms of seconds on the likes of Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) and Nibali (Bahrain-Merida), but in the end the 29-year-old crushed it. 1:05 quicker than Nibali, 3:11 over Yates.
Roglič even managed to beat Victor Campenaerts (Lotto-Soudal), who, unlike the Slovenian, started on a dry track. However, we should mention that Campenaerts suffered a mechanical and had to change his bike in the last kilometre. Roglič now sits in second place with a comfortable lead on the real GC threats. Is there anyone who can stop him? What do you think?

You know your TT position is aero when you hit a bump and punch yourself in the visor.
