Pogacar gaining on Roglic at Itzulia Basque Country



For the second day in a row, Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) took back time on his arch-rival Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) at Itzulia Basque Country, beating his countryman to the line on the hilltop finish at Ermaulde and taking back four seconds to boot.

Punching his fist in the air as he roared across the finish line atop the brutal three-kilometre climb showed how much the win, his fifth of the season, mattered to the young Slovenian, even as Roglič shadowed him close behind.
