UAE Team Emirates' Tadej Pogacar claimed victory at the time trial at the National Championships of Slovenia on Sunday, taking the win ahead of runner-up Primoz Roglic.

Jumbo-Visma rider Roglic came in eight seconds behind Pogacar on the 15.7 kilometre course between Zgornje Gorje and Pokljuka, with riders fighting through wet conditions in the Alpine nation.

Pogacar crossed the line in 31 minutes and 10 seconds.
