Jumbo-Visma's Primoz Roglic has taken his second stage victory at the 2020 Vuelta a España at the eight day of competition.

The Slovenian national champion was part of the main group throughout the entire stage and during the last climb he was still supported by some of his teammates. Sepp Kuss attacked in the last kilometres of the climb after the fireworks were already on and just after, Roglic and Richard Carapaz started a beautiful strong duel in which the Slovenian came out with the victory and he took some time back in the General Classification fight.

"The pace took off after the penultimate climb", Roglic said. "I only knew the final climb from the road book and it turned out to be a tough climb. I had good legs and you should take every chance to win.

"In addition, I took important seconds on my opponents, but in the first place it is great to win here. The next two stages are relatively flat. The weekend ahead will also be tough. We look at it from day to day and we try to stay focused."

Roglic climbed two positions in the overall standing and he sits now in the second place at 13 seconds from Carapaz.
