Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates) has finished the individual time trial of Itzulia and is now in the fifth position of the General Classification.

The winner of the 2020 Tour de France -who has also taken the overall victories in the UAE Tour and Tirreno-Adriatico so far in this season- completed the 13.89-kilometre course of the fight against the clock in 17 minutes and 45 seconds, being 28 seconds slower than his fellow countryman Primoz Roglic, who won the stage and took the lead of the General Classification.

"I am quite happy with my ride and I am confident for the next stages," said Pogacar. "I set out probably a little bit too hard but I still managed to finish well, so the legs are good.

"In the rankings, 28" separate me from the first position, but in a hard race like this things can change quickly and in this region the weather can also be unpredictable so anything can happen. Brandon (McNulty) did a great ride too, so we are happy with the team performance."
