Jumbo-Visma loses its first driver
The impending merger between the Jumbo-Visma and Soudal-QuickStep cycling teams will bring about the first change of top rider. Primoz Roglic will leave the Dutch team at the end of the season, as he confirmed before the Giro del Emilia – which the Slovenian won a few hours later ahead of compatriot Tadej Pogacar (UAE) and Simon Yates (Jaekko Alola). He didn’t want to say where he was going. The 33-year-old Slovenian’s contract with his current employer will run until the end of next season. But the Jumbo-Visma gave him the pass.

Victory at Snowshoe went to Marine Cabirou (FRA); There were no Swiss women at first.
