Gino Mäder close to tears as Roglic flies past ‘like a plane’ at Paris-Nice


At the finish of Paris-Nice‘s penultimate stage Gino Mäder passed the 50 metres-to-go marker at the top of Valdeblore La Colmiane and decided to take a final look over his shoulder before sitting up and celebrating his first victory as a WorldTour pro. Just before he could do so, his vision flashed yellow, and by the time his focus was back on the finish line, there was another figure punching the air.

It was Primož Roglič, but Mäder later said it felt more like an aeroplane. Such was the speed with which he was overtaken, one of his first thoughts was to worry he might catch a cold.
