Slovenian cycling star Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) won Sunday’s 33.8km time trial between Padron and Santiago de Compostela to win the Spanish race for the third time, while today’s win is his fourth stage victory in the last three weeks.

The 31-year-old rider has become only the third cyclist to win three consecutive Vuelta races, after Swiss Tony Rominger (1992-1994) and Spanin’s Roberto Heras (2003-2005).

At the end of July, Roglič outclassed the competition at the Tokyo Olympic Games in the men’s time trial by more than a minute to win gold for Slovenia.
