Primoz Roglic won the opening stage at the Vuelta a España, the 173-kilometre run from Irún to Arrate, to take the first leader’s jersey in the third and final grand tour of the season.

Defending champion Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) attacked in the final kilometre of the Alto de Arrate climb after Hugh Carthy (EF Pro Cycling) had been the first to show his hand.

Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers) won a three-up sprint to take second ahead of Dan Martin (Israel Start-up Nation), while Esteban Chaves (Mitchelton-Scott) was fourth.

The Vuelta continues on Wednesday with the 151km run from Pamplona to Lekunberri and concludes on November 8 in Madrid.
