Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) sixth and third stage winner in a row and fly to final victory

Slovenian Primoz Roglic won his third consecutive stage in Tirreno-Adriatico on Saturday, and took the final victory, on the eve of the final stage on Sunday, contested on a flat course. Roglic reinforced his leader’s blue jersey by running around with a small group of tough guys on the cobbled streets on the heights of Osimo Village. Britain’s Tao Geoghegan Hart finished second, ahead of Portugal’s Joao Almeida.

This sixth stage, with the false air of the Ardennes classic, presented the peloton with 193 km cut by several not very long “walls” but with proportions of more than 10%, even 15% in some places. Jumbo-Visma, Roglic’s team, was clearly aiming for a stage victory: the yellow jerseys had worked for a long time not to slip away from the eleven riders who started too early.
