Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) confirmed his overall victory at the Vuelta a Burgos by winning the final queen stage up Lagunas de Neila in the final uphill sprint against Adam Yates (UAE Team Emirates).
The Slovenian sat in behind Yates and Aleksandr Vlasov (Bora-Hansgrohe) once the Brit attacked in the final 3km, but as soon as they came to the final few hundred metres he moved to the front and easily out-kicked Yates and was even able to look back at his rivals over the line.
The Slovenian started the day 33 seconds ahead of Vlasov in second and 38 of Yates in third thanks to his team’s victory in the team trial and his win into Villarcayo on stage 3, and he extended that to 39 and 42 seconds of an advantage respectively thanks to the bonus seconds.
This win maintains Roglič’s 100% record in stage races throughout 2023 ahead of his ambition to win a record equalling fourth Vuelta a España as co-leader with Jonas Vingegaard come the end of the month.
