Primoz Roglic gave an encore at Vuelta al Pais Vasco, riding his Aquila CV to win the sixth and final stage, a 27,7 km ITT with start and finish in Eibar (Spain) on Saturday, April 8th. Team LottoNL-Jumbo's Slovenian clocked 35:58 with a 9-second advantage on Alejandro Valverde and 15 seconds on Ion Izagirre. Roglic's teammate George Bennett finished 10th with a 1:23 gap. Roglic had already topped the stage 4 with Oltre XR4 in Bilbao.
The success in Eibar pushes Roglic up to fifth in the final classification with a 59-second gap from the overall winner Valverde, whilst Bennett placed eleventh. The Slovenian also placed third in Points Classification (54, 20 less than Valverde) and Team LottoNL-Jumbo sixth in the Teams Classification.
Team LottoNL-Jumbo's riders are equipped with four models engineered with Countervail® viscoelastic carbon material:
  • Oltre XR4, designed to maximize the aerodynamic advantage and control
  • Specialissima, the ultralight frame, perfect for GC riders, it’s extra stiff for increased traction and stability at high speeds, and maximum control on the descents
  • Infinito CV, the ideal bike for the Classics, it provides remarkable control on uneven surfaces and reduces muscular fatigue.
  • Aquila CV, the ultimate time trial machine, it’s designed to increase power output and rider's energy, with maximum control with each pedal stroke.
