Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) won his second consecutive Tour of Spain on Sunday at the end of the 18th and final stage, won by the German Pascal Ackermann (Bora) in Madrid.
The Slovenian, second in the Tour de France six weeks ago, is ahead of the Ecuadorian Richard Carapaz (Ineos) by 24 seconds in the final general classification and the Briton Hugh Carthy (Education First) by 47 seconds.

Unhappy during the last Great Loop, Roglic did not crack on the other side of the Pyrenees, after a lap generally well mastered by his Jumbo-Visma team.
In addition to the final victory, the Slovenian will have won four stages in total this year in Spain.
