Jumbo-Visma's Primoz Roglic has retained the Pink Jersey after the second stage of the Giro d'Italia. The rider crossed the finish line in Vinci with the peloton.

It was a rainy and cold day on the second day of competition in the Corsa Rosa, but despite the conditions, Roglic was well protected by his team inside the peloton. The rider crossed the finish line with the peloton, five seconds behind the stage winner Pascal Ackermann.

"There was rain and cold from the beginning, it was also quite fast all the time and we did some climbs so it was a proper start of the race," said the Slovenian after the podium ceremony in which he wore the Pink Jersey again. "I was quite okay but for sure I was happy when the sun came out."

Jumbo-Visma did the work of protecting the rider along the climbs and windy stretches of the second stage and that was rewarded by him keeping the lead of the General Classification for another day.

"It's another day in the Maglia Rosa, the team worked hard and I enjoyed it," Roglic explained. "It's a pleasure to retain the jersey."
