Roglic gets off to a winning start and becomes the first leader of the Itzulia 2021

– Roglic wins and gains a lead of more than 30″ over the race favourites.

– The 60th edition of the Itzulia began with a great line-up of cyclists and no public on the roads.

At long last, the Itzulia Basque Country 2021 is underway. Bilbao was today host to the first stage of the 60th edition of the Itzulia. In a short but demanding stage, just one of the favourites managed to take the stage and the lead. Primož Roglič (141, TJV) won the stage and only McNulty (33, UAD), 2 seconds behind, managed to get close to the Slovenian.

Tadej Pogačar won the mountain jersey, having finished the day’s only climb in the shortest time. McNulty, who finished second in the stage, became the best young rider. Alex Aranburu starts the Itzulia as the best Basque rider ahead of Pello Bilbao and Omar Fraile respectively.
