Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) tightened his grip on the yellow jersey at Paris-Nice in strikingly familiar fashion as he sprinted to victory on the hilltop finale in Biot on stage 6. The Slovenian held off Christophe Laporte (Cofidis) and Michael Matthews (Team BikeExchange) with a powerful acceleration to notch up his second win of the week and take another firm stride towards overall victory.

The stage winner’s bonus sees Roglic extend his lead over Max Schachmann (Bora-Hansgrohe) to 41 seconds, but the psychological impact of the victory perhaps carries greater weight than the time gained. Once again, Roglic seemed at ease in holding his rivals at arm’s length.
