Primož Roglič is set to start the Vuelta a España on Friday for Jumbo-Visma, after the defending champion recovered from injuries he sustained at the Tour de France last month.

As a result, the Slovenian will be able to target the Spanish Grand Tour for the fourth time in a row, after his victories in 2019, 2020 and 2021. He withdrew halfway through the Tour after suffering an injury on stage five. Roglič has not raced since then, but did resume training earlier this month, giving the team confidence in his form.
