It's unbelievable, a real crazy stage.

Soaring downhill.

A new generation of climbers are here; Warren Barguil and now Primoz Roglic becomes the first Slovenian to win a Tour stage. He only started cycling five years ago, a pretty good timetrailist, a former ski jumper crossing the line solo after an exciting 1st day in the Alps. 

"This is the biggest event in cycling. It's normal that everyone wants to be here but somehow it's a little different and already a big thing that I am here after only five years on my bike. Winning is unbelievable."
- Primoz Roglic

Rigo going downhill but going uphill... fast!
