La Vuelta Stage 2
Primroz Roglic won the opening stage 1 individual time trial. While the time gains were not massive it goes to prove a point fresh off his Olympic gold performance in the discipline. Stage 2 one for the sprinters saw Jasper Philipsen (Alpecin-Fenix) just edge out Fabio Jakobsen (QuickStep) for the win. After coming up short 3 times at the TdF, Philipsen got it just right in La Vuelta.
