Jumbo-Visma's Primoz Roglic has taken the last stage victory and GC win at the Tour de l'Ain, his first stage race of the season.

The French race has been very successful for the Slovenian national champion after taking the two victories at the two climbing finales and winning the overall classification. Him, along Tom Dumoulin, Steven Kruijswijk, George Bennett, Robert Gesink and Tony Martin, controlled the race on the two most challenging days and showed to be one of the favourite squads for the Tour de France.

"Today was a tough day because of the high pace and the long climbs," said Roglic. "But the whole team once again did a fantastic job and showed how strong we are. I’m glad I was able to finish it off again. We are positively surprised by how strong we already are as a team.

"You never know exactly where you stand after such a long break. As far as we can see now, we have already shown that we are at a reasonably high level. At the same time, this is only the first race in a long time, so we should certainly continue to do our best in this way. The results will then come naturally."
