As it began, so it ended: Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) concluded the 2021 Vuelta a España just as he started, with victory in a time trial, celebrated in front of a cathedral and with the red leader’s jersey securely in his grasp, too.

However, there was a big difference. Standing outside Santiago’s cathedral and even as his Vuelta a España came full circle with another victory, Roglič also expressed the hope that he will be back in the future to fight for a record-equalling fourth win.
