Mohoric steals the CRO Race from Vingegaard by a second

The bonus received for his second place in the sixth and final stage gave the Slovenian Matej Mohoric (Bahrain Victorious) the final victoryfor a single second, in the Tour of Croatia, to the detriment of the Dane Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo Visma)winner of the last Tour de France, who had started the day as leader with 8 seconds ahead.

Mohoric took the good wheel in the sprint, that of Elia Viviani (Ineos Grenadiers)and although the Italian clearly beat him, second place was enough for the Slovenian to proclaim himself the final winner. Vingegaard, who was looking for his second win in a stage race, finished the stage fourteenth in the same time as Vivianibut the bonuses deprived him of the title.

Jonathan Lastra (Caja Rural Seguros) was the best ranked Spaniard in the general standings, eighth at 47 seconds, and Omar Fraile (Ineos) finished tenth, at 1:43, while Colombian Branon Rivera was sixth, 31 seconds behind the winner. The sixth and final stage led the riders from Sveta Nedelja to Zagreb on a journey of 158km with three levels of third category.

Vingegaard had dressed as the leader this Saturday after winning the queen stage in the sprint of a dozen runners that came together with the last kilometer of the fifth and penultimate stage, played over a 154 km route between Opatija and Labin. In an ascending section with a cobbled floor, the Dane prevailed over the British by half a wheel Oscar Onley (DSM) and two seconds later Mohoric crossed the finish line.
