14:19, 20km to go: Roglič has pushed really hard for couple of moments, and Rafal Majka was the only one that could follow. Slovenian backed down a little bit and let other to catch him.

11:20: There are 700 meters of gravel on the 26thkilometer – due to construction works. This is something that are cyclists use to, but caution will still be necessary.

11:10: We’re seeing breakaway attempts all the time, but so far all of them have been neutralized. This just shows how important is today’s stage for all the teams that count on overall victory. These teams don’t want to leave anything to a chance.

11:07, 15km: Main group is still together, we still don’t have a successful breakaway. We have a report that Croatian Deni Baniček (Meridiana Kamen) crashed and has left the race.

11:00, 12km: Breakaway group is too bi (12-15 cyclists), this is why the peloton doesn’t let them away.

10:55, 8km: Looks like we have a first breakaway. 12 cyclists are in the lead, main group is 18 seconds behind.

10:50: The race started for real. There are 150 cyclists left on the start. We saw first attempts of the breakaway right away.

10:45: Primož Roglič is one of the favorites for today stage, he’s also looking forward to say hello to fans from his hometown. “Race route goes across my part of the country and I’m really happy about it. I miss racing on the home roads and in front of home fans. It’s an honor to race on Tour of Slovenia.

Yesterday’s winner Dylan Groenewegen also promised he’ll help Primož: “We’ll work for Primož, after all this stage is important for the overall standings.”

Start - Slovenske Konjice

10:35: Overall leader Benjamin Hill: “It’s fantastic to wear the green jersey, I still can belive it. I’ll give my best to keep the jersey, but my chances are at zero.”

Third stage will be very vibrant and hard, almost 176 kilometers long. Hardest part of the day is on the route Trojane-Zagorje-Hrastnik and of course the final climbs to Celje Hut and final climb to Celje Castle.

Today's winner will not necessarily win the race, we still have a Queen mountain stage on Saturday and time trial on Sunday. But we'll see who has strong legs and who are those cyclists that will fight for the green jersey on the end. Australian Benjamin Hill (Ljubljana Gusto Xaurum) is wearing it today.

Especially emotional day will be our Slovenian overall favorite Primož Roglič, stage will also lead by his hometown Kisovec. Locals gave him a promise that it's going to be very loud...
