Roglic, who rides for Team Jumbo-Visma, started the time trial in second place in the overall standings, 25 seconds behind Yates. "It was unbelievably close. I was lucky in the end," Roglic said. "I felt strong ... I tried to make a difference and really go for it and I really pushed until the finish line.
"I was confident but I can only control myself." Yates had been in the lead of the race since the second of the seven stages, while his Mitchelton-Scott team had won the opening-day team time trial. "It was close, but it wasn't enough, that's how it goes, that's bike racing," Yates said. "I did the best I could, I said yesterday that 25 seconds isn't really enough. But I did a good TT, I'll have to look back but I think the power was good and I held my position for as long as I could.
"There wasn't much more I could do, the strongest man won, but for sure next year I'll be back and hopefully I can come back stronger." Jakob Fuglsang of Denmark finished third overall, 30 seconds behind Roglic and nearly a minute ahead of Tom Dumoulin.
Campenaerts won the final stage in 11-plus minutes. Alberto Bettiol was three seconds behind the Belgian. Jos van Emden of the Netherlands was four seconds back.
