Primoz Roglic has his dominance in the Tour de Romandie some extra put in the paint. The Slovenian picked up in a time trial of 16.8 miles in Geneva, his third stage win – the second in a row – and is also the winner. Victor Campenaerts sat some two hours in the hotseat, but in the end had been several recognise in the unleashed Go.
Victor Campenaerts had been asked to bake in Geneva and took immediately a clear option on the victory. With a time of 20’11” snuggled he is at the top of the tables, Filippo Ganna (2 seconds) would be the closest to the time of the werelduurrecordhouder. Also patented hardrijders as Tony Martin, Stefan Kung and Geraint Thomas bites their teeth on Campenaerts.
There came all the way to the end, however, still a big challenger turn: Primoz Roglic, the man who is already 2 rides had won, and as a leader in the general classification as the last should start. The Slovenian soon took the lead and remained Campenaerts eventually clear. He popped up as the only one under 20 minutes: with a time of 19’58” did Roglic 13 seconds better than Campenaerts. The Slovenian is, of course, also the winner of the Tour de Romandie and should red be checked as the big favourite for the Giro.
