Alex Aranburu finished second, six seconds behind, and Jan Tratnik was another two seconds back in third. Roglic had also opened with a win in 2020 en route to his second consecutive Vuelta title. Sunday’s second stage will take riders through a flat 166-kilometer (103-mile) route that should favor the sprinters. The three-week Grand Tour race will finish in Santiago de Compostela.
