Start - Ljubljana

10.45: Rigoberto Uran, winner of the Friday stage and the holder of the green jersey: “My plan is to follow Roglič and maybe take advantage of the opportunity for the attack. It’s a hard stage, but so was the one on Friday. I feel good.”

Tadej Pogačar (Ljubljana Gusto Xaurum), 11thoverall: “I feel great, plan for today is all or nothing. I expect the most fans in Kamnik.”

Friday’s stage with finish on Celje Castle was very interesting and diverse. Runner-up from 2017 Tour de France Colombian ace Rigoberto Uran (EF Education First-Drapac p/b Cannondale) took over the lead.

Southafrican Daryl Impey (Mitchelton – Scott) is just four seconds behind, Slovenian favorite Primož Roglič (LottoNL-Jumbo) 10, 2017 Tour of Slovenia winner Rafal Majka (BORA hansgrohe) is 14 seconds back. One of these cyclists will most likely win 2018 Tour of Slovenia.

Goal is to at least keep up with Uran

Uran showed that his legs are strong and that his home is in the mountains, Roglič’s job for Saturday is to not get additional seconds behind Colombian. He should take back 10 seconds on the Sunday’s time-trial from Trebnje to Novo mesto.

Three above thousand passes

Cyclists will warm up in the first 80 kilometers, after that the things will get serious. Climb to Jezersko is nine kilometers long, with the average incline of 5.1%, then they will face first category climb to Pavlič Pass.

“Pavlič” is five kilometers long with the average incline of 10.1%. Last climb of the day is Volovljek, just over five kilometers long climb with average incline of 8.1%.
