Video: Watch Roglic stay so relaxed after crash while leading Giro

Posted on: May 16th, 2019
Primoz Roglic suffered his first slip – and wardrobe malfunction – on the Giro. But it’s incredible how calm he remains through it all.

This Jumbo-Visma clip from inside the team car shows just how relaxed Primoz Roglic was after his crash on yesterday’s sixth stage of the Giro.

The Slovenia clearly wanted to lose the race lead for now and relive himself and his team of all the work that goes with race leadership.

With the leader facing doping control and the podium presentation, as well as interviews, after each stage valuable recovery time is lost.

Furthermore, during stages when gaps open it mostly falls to the race leader’s team to ride on the front. And three weeks is a long time to keep it all going.

However, though losing the race lead was of benefit to the team, crashing in the leader’s jersey is still a stressful moment.

This video, however, shows ride and team workers in the team car take it all in their stride, immediately joking about the situation.
