Remco Evenepoel started the last stage of Itzulia Basque Country as a GC leader with a slim margin over the other GC contenders. Despite producing his best 15 minute power in a race on Krabelin and catching the leaders before the final climb, Arrate, it was not enough for the isolated Belgian to defend the leader's jersey. Daniel Martinez, who was dropped on the descent off Krabelin but came back with Evenepoel's help on the flat, won the GC, while Ion Izagirre, despite crashing on Arrate, recovered to win the final stage.
Once again, Primož Roglič almost lost a World Tour stage race in France on the last decisive day. Luckily for him, his Jumbo-Visma teammate, Wout Van Aert, was there to save him after Simon Yates dropped everyone on the Col d'Eze climb and threatened Roglič's 40 second GC lead in Paris-Nice stage 8.
INEOS tried to put pressure on the race leader Primož Roglič with Adam Yates and Daniel Martinez' attacks on the Col de Turini climb, but the Slovenian was unbeatable, winning the queen stage of Paris-Nice with an impressive acceleration at the end of the hard climb. Roglič set a new Col de Turini record, beating Bernal and Quintana's time set in 2019 by 42 seconds.
