By: J.S., STA

Slovenia’s star rider Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) won the 28th Tour of Slovenia to defend the title from last year, as he won the last, fifth stage on Sunday between Vrhnika, central Slovenia, and Novo Mesto, SE.

The 23-year-old two-time Tour of France winner finished the Slovenian race ahead of his Polish teammate Rafal Majka, with Slovenia’s Domen Novak (Bahrain-Victorius) finishing third. Pogačar sees the Tour of Slovenia as a good rehearsal before the upcoming Tour de France.
