SAN BENEDETTO DEL TRONTO, Italy. Primož Roglić made a successful return to cycling by winning the week-long Tirreno-Adriatico race, the fourth Slovenian victory in five races of the Race of the Two Seas.
It was Roglic’s first race of the season since the Jumbo-Visma rider underwent shoulder surgery last year.
“It’s nice to get back to racing in this way. I really enjoyed the whole week,” Roglic said. “My teammates were very strong.
“A week ago, I just expected to get hurt. It’s even better to win when it’s unexpected. I also feel good ahead of the Giro d’Italia.”
Having won the previous three stages and building up a significant lead, Roglic defended his lead and finished safely in the Stage 7 peloton, finishing the week-long race 18 seconds ahead of Portugal’s Joao Almeida and 23 seconds ahead of British cyclist Tao Geoghegan. Hart.

Belgian cyclist Jasper Philipsen won the group sprint and stage victory. The Alpecin-Deceuninck racer overtook Dylan Grünewegen and Alberto Dainese.
It was Philipsen’s second sprint win at Tirreno this year, making him one of the favorites for next weekend’s Milan-San Remo.
“Eventually I was dying, my legs hurt terribly, but I am happy that I was able to hold out until the end,” Philipsen said.
“The sprint stage is always different from a classic one like Sanremo, but of course we have some confidence. I think we have a strong team. So now it’s good to take a break, recover a bit and try to be at the highest level.”
The 154 km (96 mi) route that started and ended at San Benedetto del Tronto experienced an early breakaway but eight riders were caught with just over 3 kilometers (2 mi) left.
