Roglic dominates time trial and powers to Giro favouritism


Briton Simon Yates of Australian team Mitchelton Scott took a beating as he lost 3:11 to Roglic, and Spain’s Miguel Angel Lopez ended up 3:45 off the pace after all the general classification contenders rode the stage in wet conditions.

It was a spectacular reverse of fortune for Yates, who had been strong in the opening time trial after warning his rivals they should be scared of him.

Overall, Conti, who is not among the main GC contenders, leads Roglic, winner of the first time trial, by 1:50.

Roglic now has 1:44 on Nibali in the overall standings before the Giro hits the mountains.
