STA, 5 April 2018 - Slovenian cyclist Primož Roglič (LottoNL-Jumbo) won the fourth stage of the Tour of the Basque Country on Thursday, a 19.4km time trial that brought him the overall lead in one of the more prestigious annual professional races.

Roglič, who became last year the first Slovenian to win a Tour de France stage, crossed the finish line after 22 minutes and 26 seconds today, 9 seconds faster than Patrick Bevin from New Zeeland.

The 28-year-old former ski jumper and silver medal winner in the individual time trial at last year's World Cycling Championships holds a 34-second lead ahead of French rider Julian Alaphilippe ahead of the final two stages.

This is the fifth victory for a Slovenian cyclist on the UCI World Tour circuit this year. Roglič has managed two stage wins, as has Jan Tratnik, while Matej Mohorič also entered the winners list.
