Tadej Pogacar put in a storming ride on home soil to claim gold in the Slovenian National Time Trial Championships. 
The 21 year old put in a blistering time of 31:10:48 on the 15.6km course, 9 seconds clear of runner-up Primoz Roglic (Jumbo Visma) who had claimed the road race title the previous week.
Jan Polanc put in a brave ride to claim the bronze medal and end a strong week of competition in Slovenia.
"After second place last week, coming back and taking the win felt really nice. It was a course I knew very well and we had trained a lot on it during the week," he said.
"Jan has showed his form is coming really good too. He worked hard last week for me in the road race and to get the bronze is really nice for the team also."
