With its modesty and openness, it charms and enchants.” With his performances, Primož writes cycling history – as the first Slovene to wear a yellow jersey in  France and a pink one in a race in Italy, he is the first Slovene to step on the podium of a three-week race and also the first to win a three-week race; he is the first Slovenian to win one of the five cycling monuments and is the first Slovenian cyclist to win an Olympic gold medal.
