Roglicus, the elder brother of Genius, wins Volta and is already the most useful in the second race

The Slovenian allowed to beat Evenepoel in the last stage and now has seven wins in just 14 days of competition

The older brother of the explosive generation triumphs in profits. Primoz Roglic (33 years old) is an oddball among the number of twenty-something masters of the world cycle. The Slovene is not only ahead of Evenepoel, Vingegaard, Van der Poel or Van Aert, but is also ahead in the revenue collected in this first half of the season. Only his compatriot Pogacar surpasses him.

Roglic, because of the excellent hill of extreme speed which distinguishes him, and his solvency in mountain matters, occupies a place in the order of action. This Sunday, in Barcelona, ​​the leader of the Volta a Catalunya was wounded after an attack by Evenepoel in the sixth ascent to the Castle of Montjuic.

The tireless Dutch phenomenon again troubled the Slovenian veteran with many attacks, as in previous days. The group could be defined by the good and the road endurance world champion did not give in his effort. By his offensive maneuvers he broke and interrupted the peloton in which Roglicus himself and the excellent Marcus Soler clung. The Catalan climbed up to the last Olympic mountain.

Evenepoel found Roglicus very firm in his powers and very convinced of his affairs. Both pointed to the goal. The Dutch won because the Slovene, although faster, did not want to fight in a rush. He gave it to his rival in a peculiar way. His second victory in the Volta 2023, his third victory on the day and overall in the Emirates Tour.

But the ruler of the Volta was Roglicus, who seemed to electrify his reputation by opposing it from the Giro d’Italia. There, as happened in Catalonia, he will fight again with Evenepoel. In the Catalonia round, the leader of Jumbo also added two stage victories. Some cautions add those harvests in this tenor: three degrees and the prefect of Tirreno-Adriatic. In total, five grades and two leaders competed in just 14 days and in only two races. Complete victory.

Some superlative numbers, a little less than the successes accumulated by Pogacar in 2023. This year, the versatile UAE rider won nine (two more than Roglic): Clásico de Jaén, three days and general of Paris-Nicaea and three grades and general. de Vuelta a Andalucía) but he completed them in 15 days and in five tests. The winner of the Tour was left without a prize in Milan-San Remo and the E3 Saxo Classico.

Two Slovenians share the best cake. ‘It was an honor for me to win the 100-year-old race with a lot of history. From the beginning of the test I realized that I was in great physical condition, I hope this until the Giro d’Italia” said Roglic shortly before conquering the Volta podium.
