Rampant Roglic wins Tour of Romandie

Geneva (AFP) –


Defending champion Primoz Roglic clinched the Tour of Romandie on Sunday winning his third stage on the six day race by topping the individual time-trial around Geneva.

The 29-year-old Roglic is one of the favourites to win the Giro d'Italia which starts next weekend after winning the Romandie race by 49 seconds from Portugal's Rui Costa and 1min 12sec on Tour de France holder Geraint Thomas.

In Sunday's 16.8km time trial Roglic was 13sec faster than the second-placed European champion Victor Campenaerts, recent claimer of the one hour distance world record in Mexico.
