Jumbo-Visma's Primoz Roglic has kicked off his participation in Itzulia on the right foot by taking the win of the first stage of the race.

The Slovenian rider took his fourth victory of the season so far -after the three stages he won in Paris-Nice- by completing the 13.89-kilometre course of the individual time trial in 17 minutes and 17 seconds. The rider took a 28-second advantage on other GC riders like Tadej Pogacar and Adam Yates.

"I am very happy with this victory and with my performance today", Roglic said. "It's always special and beautiful when you win. It was a very good day for us. The time trial here is always tough and I like to race in the Basque Country.

"The course was a nice challenge with a mix of climbs, descents, fast turns and a steep wall at the end. It is a great start for us, but we will have a tough week ahead of us. The field here is really strong and the next stages are going to be very tough."
