Jumbo-Visma's Primoz Roglic has taken the victory of the last stage of the Vueta a España and confirmed his overall win of the race.

The Slovenian started in the closing time trial of the Spanish grand tour as the clear favourite, after winning the Gold medal in the discipline in the Olympic Games of Tokyo 2020 and taking the victory of the fight against the clock at the first stage of the race. He didn't disappoint as he completed the course 14 seconds faster than Magnus Cort Nielsen, and confirmed, like this, his third overall win in a row in the grand tour.

"It was another beautiful day, and they were three beautiful weeks," said Roglic. "I am very happy for myself and the guys around me. This is truly a team effort. It was a tough last stage. Still, I enjoyed the crowd and the support along the way.

"I just tried to focus on the stage today and to do my very best. It's unbelievable, it's crazy. Sometimes you win by a big difference, sometimes by a little. But any way of winning is fantastic. We took it day by day. I did my best and enjoyed it. I am honoured to win for the third time."
