Slovenia celebrates cyclist Roglič after historic feat at Giro

Ljubljana/Verona, 3 June - Slovenia is celebrating its best cyclist Primož Roglič, who on Sunday finished third overall at the Giro d'Italia for the first ever podium finish for a Slovenian at the Grand Tour races. What makes the success even greater is the fact that the 29-year-old survived the gruelling race virtually without help from his team mates.
