BLOODIED BUT UNBOWED – PRIMOZ ROGLIC’S HEROIC EFFORT AT PARIS-NICE (VIDEO)
Has this year's hardman prize already been won?
Despite a dislocated shoulder and no shortage of road rash, Jumbo-Visma’s star rider Primoz Roglic lost what was a certain win at Paris-Nice on the final stage after crashing twice. It almost felt cruel to watch Roglic working so hard to try and pace himself back to the peloton, but onward he pedaled passing and dropping riders at will in the vain attempt to take a title that everyone thought was his to enjoy. Bike racing – it ain’t over ’til it’s over!
Despite his injuries and exhaustion, Primoz still took the time to congratulate the man who took his win.
