Indeed, but it's not just that. This Vuelta suits him buch better also. No real high mountain stages apart from the one in Andorra, which is still a joke compared to the toughest Giro stages.Great showing from Primoz today. He is clearly stronger on the climbs than he was in the Giro. He is also more serene in the interviews and looks overall more relaxed. Good signs.
The circunstances are clearly different. In the Giro his team was much weaker and he had unexpected situations that he wasn't expecting like the bike change or the crash.Roglic is just waiting for the time trial. He did the same in the giro and he lost
Considering this it was an amazing display of mental an physical strength from Primož. Also I think he was tactically perfect. Great job.
So a stopped cycle in the road causes it...yikes what lousy luck . His ride looks Even Better after seeing that. Great recovery and catch back. Hopefully he doesn't pay a price in injury and soreness.
