Primoz Roglic won cycling’s eight-day Paris-Nice race on Sunday, crossing the finish line third on a rainy French Riviera seafront for a narrow, tense victory.
The Slovenian rider had to chase hard as race runner-up and Sunday’s stage winner Simon Yates broke away of the final climb before a 15km daredevil downhill dash into Nice where he won the day on the celebrated Promenade des Anglais.

Roglic was at risk but was led up the last steep climb by teammate Wout van Aert who shepherded him all the way to the finish line to end the race, 29 seconds ahead of Yates.
