Jonas Vingegaard, after losing 15 seconds to Roglic in the opening time trial of the Itzulia: "I have to be happy with how it went and with my sensations"

Jonas Vingegaard lost 15 seconds to Primoz Roglic in the opening time trial of the Itzulia 2024. Despite this, after the race he was very happy with his performance in the Eurosport microphones.

"It was very hard, very explosive, I have to be happy with how it went and with the sensations I had." On whether having lost some time in the time trial could be the key to the overall classification, the Visma - Lease a Bike leader made it clear that he did not think so, that the race will be decided at the end and that there is still a lot of ground ahead to make a difference despite the fact that the hardness is less than other years:

"It seems that the race is less hard than other years, but other editions have taught us that everything is going to be decided in the last stage, so it's going to be a big battle not only at that point, but during the whole race," he tells. "I've had a good period after Tirreno, the form is good and now I'm looking forward to this race as well."

The Team Visma | Lease a Bike rider ended the first day of racing 15 seconds back on his former teammate, 4 seconds back on Remco Evenepoel - who crashed in the first corner - but is well within contention for victory, even if he was not at the same level as his rivals against the clock.
