The 2023 Giro d'Italia winner Primoz Roglic will take a brief break from racing after celebrating his recent victory and will not ride the Tour de France this year, he said.

Roglic became the first Slovenian winner of the Giro d'Italia in May and decided to enjoy the win by briefly stepping off the bike.

"I'm enjoying it, it's been a bunch of sweet obligations," Roglic told RTV Slovenija on Monday when he officially celebrated the victory in the capital city of Ljubljana.

That break is going to continue into the summer, meaning he won't take part in the biggest race of the year.

"I'm not going to the Tour, but I'm probably going to race Vuelta a Espana. Vuelta will most likely be my next race. I really didn't plan to do Tour de France this year," he added.

The three-times Vuelta a Espana winner added that he would also skip this year's World Championships which will take place in early August in Scotland.

"I'm too switched off right now," the Jumbo-Visma rider said.

Roglic didn't finish last year's Tour but still played a huge part in it, helping team-mate and eventual winner Jonas Vingegaard get the better of Tadej Pogacar.
