Primož Roglič third in the first time trial of the Tour

It was the best time trial of the Tour de France for Primož Roglič. Third place! A position that the Slovenian has never achieved in the battle against the clock at the Tour. Only world champion Remco Evenepoel and yellow jersey wearer Tadej Pogacar were faster. Roglič raced through the vineyards of Burgundy at an average speed of 51.6 km/h.

We can be pretty happy with Primoz's TT. Third place with a reasonable time gap, 120% effort in the downhill where you can't go faster than him. That was outstanding. The second part of the time trial was super. The world champion won - fair enough, that's why he's the world champion.

7 stages have been completed - the first third of the Tour de France 2024 is over. Primož Roglič is 4th overall, just 21 seconds off the podium.
One of the biggest unknowns of this year's Tour awaits on Sunday. There will be a stage around Troyes with 14 gravel sectors. More than 32 kilometers of gravel can provide plenty of surprises. With the S-Works Tarmac SL8, Red Bull - BORA - hansgrohe has the perfect setup for this surface. Only the tires are specially adapted for the gravel day. Individual tire types, widths and pressures will be used. More than 100 wheels have already been prepared by the mechanics.
