Rogilic stormed his way to take the leader’s red jersey on 23rd August 2022. Ever since the mishap he faced at Tour de France, it was being speculated if the rider will be able to return to his true form or not. But the Slovenian has proved that no injury is big enough to keep him away from what he loves. 

Kenny Elissonde (Trek-Segafredo) took it upon himself to lead the peloton through the narrow roads of the uphill track but he was no match for Rogilic’s wrath and decided it would be best to settle for second place. Even though the Movistar team initially ruled the track, Enric Mas was only able to close in third.

Primoz Rogilic is now 13 seconds ahead of Sepp Kuss. He has a lead of 26 seconds on Ethan Hayter,  Sivakov,Geoghegan Hart (Ineos), and from Remco Evenepoel (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl Team) a whole of 27 seconds.

This win came in as no surprise since Jumbo-Visma even dominated the opening time trial stage. Rogilic not only won the red jersey, but he also helped himself to score extra time ( 13 seconds) as a bonus. 10 seconds for winning the stage and 3 more for the Puerto de Herrera climb sprint. Rogilic is not stopping here as the Jumbo-Visma rider made it clear that it is just the beginning of what he has planned to achieve. He said:

It’s really just the beginning of the Vuelta,I always say it’s better to have some seconds in front than behind

This win marks the 10th career stage win for Primoz Rogilic at the Spanish Grand Tour.
