Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) has climbed to victory in the Giro dell'Emilia after launching a final attack at the last ascent of the day.

The winner of the 2019 Vuelta a España crossed the finish line by himself after making a move at the last ascent of the climb of San Luca. This climb is familiar for Roglic because earlier in the year he won the opening time trial of the Giro d'Italia in this same place and he took the Pink Jersey that same day.

"The team did a great job today", Roglic said. "We controlled the race from the start. On the local laps, we often participated in the attack and we caught the last attackers. In the end, it was up to me to finish it off. To be honest, I didn't have very good legs today. We can all be very happy with today's result. This victory would not have been possible without my teammates.

"The last time I climbed San Luca, I won and today I win again. I think it's a nice place here. I will start in Tre Valli Varesine next Tuesday, and then finish my season in Il Lombardia."
