Majka storms to success at the Tour of Slovenia

UAE Team Emirates dominate with Pogačar 3rd

The Tour of Slovenia 2022 starts in the best way for the UAE Team Emirates: Rafal Majka won in the inaugural stage (Nova Gorica-Postojna of 164.7 km), ahead of Domen Novak (Bahrain-Victorious) and teammate Tadej Pogačar. The trio made the decisive move with 59 km left: an attack by the two-time winner of the Tour de France on the slopes of the Zadlog climb (2nd category, 4.7 km at 7.4% average gradient) gave life to the trio of attackers, chased for a long time without success by Matej Mohoric (Bahrain-Victorious) and Sean Bennett (China Glory).
In the final, perfect teamwork allowed Majka to take his first win of the season (26th for UAE Team Emirates), while Pogačar crossed the line in 3rd place.
The first group of pursuers finished the stage 48 seconds behind Majka.
