Primož Roglič (born 29 October 1989 in Trbovlje) is a Slovenian racing cyclist currently riding for LottoNL–Jumbo.[1] Roglič started his career as a ski jumper but then shifted to cycling.


Ski jumping[edit]

Roglič is a former ski jumper who competed from 2003–2011, and was the Junior World Ski Jumping champion in 2007.[2] He set his personal best at 183 metres (600 ft) at Heini-Klopfer-Skiflugschanze flying hill in Oberstdorf, Germany in 2011. He suffered a crash in front of his home crowd in 2007 at the Letalnica bratov Gorišek ski flying hill in Planica, Slovenia.[3][4]

Road cycling[edit]

Roglič took up cycling in 2012, after quiting ski jumping, because he felt it was too hard to be at the highest level of the sport. Roglič quickly made the jump to paid levels for the 2013 season with the continental Adria Mobil team. After three seasons with the team a successful 2015 season, including a win at the 2015 Tour of Slovenia, got him a contract to ride with LottoNL–Jumbo for the next season. [5]

Roglič started in the 2016 Giro d'Italia,[6] where he surprised with a second place in the opening time trial in Apeldoorn, being only one hundredth of a second slower than winner Tom Dumoulin.[7] He won the 9th stage, 40.5 km. individual time trial in Chianti. In 2016 he finished 10th in the Time trial at Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. In June 2017, he was named in the startlist for the 2017 Tour de France.[8] He won stage 17 of the race[9] becoming the first Slovenian to win a stage of the Tour de France. He later won silver at that year's UCI Road World Championships time trial.[10]
