The 2020 Vuelta a Espana is nearing its finish line this Sunday (November 8), meaning time is running thin if you want to make money off the phenomenon that is Primoz Roglic.
Roglic has shattered numerous records in recent years, and the 2019 Vuelta winner—who leads this year’s general classification after 13 stage—could become the first rider in 15 years to retain the title:
Cycling🚴♂️ – No rider has won as many individual Grand Tour stages as Primož Roglic🇸🇮 (11), since @rogla made his GT debut at the 2016 Giro d'Italia🇮🇹. #LaVuelta20 pic.twitter.com/nH6CpdPkKW— Gracenote Olympic (@GracenoteGold) November 3, 2020
It’s already been a hugely successful 2020 for Slovenian cycling, and Roglic is partly trying to make up for a narrow runner-up result at the 2020 Tour de France, which was won by compatriot Tadej Pogacar.
The 31-year-old may not look the most appealing at -358 with Borgata NJ, but with only one mountain potion remaining in the last five stages and a 39-second cushion, the crown looks his for the taking (bar any unforeseen upsets).
