Roglic will undoubtedly have enjoyed his good start in the Tour of Spain.

The afterglow has now come to an end, because there is now a new difficult challenge on the program.

"Yesterday was a good start, but now we have to look to today. There is a tough stage on the program and with the windy conditions gaps can appear on the final climb," said the Slovenian.
