Roglic set to clinch Vuelta crown, Pogacar earns third stage win

Slovenian Primoz Roglic is poised to win the Vuelta a Espana after retaining the leader’s red jersey as his compatriot Tadej Pogacar won the decisive stage 20 in the mountains with a stunning display of solo climbing. Barring a crash in final stage from Fuenlabrada to the centre of Madrid, the 29-year-old will earn his first Grand Tour victory and become the first Slovenian to win one of cycling’s three biggest races. Roglic came fifth in the gruelling 190km mountain stage containing five climbs from Arenas de San Pedro to Plataforma de Gredos nine seconds behind world champion Alejandro Valverde, who is set to be the overall runner-up. Roglic holds a lead of two minutes and 33 seconds over Valverde, while Pogacar is practically guaranteed third place and a spot on the podium after another superb solo display.
