The Slovenian Primoz Roglic and the Danish Jonas Vingegaard will be the assets of the Jumbo Visma in the Tour de France 2022 and the Dutch Tom Dumoulin will be the reference in the Giro d’Italia, While the Belgian Wout Van Aert will opt for the classics and the green jersey in the ‘grande boucle’, as revealed by the team at its concentration in Alicante.

The Dutch team aims for the greatest successes this season, including unseating Slovenian Tadej Pogacar in his bid for his third consecutive Tour. “We want to compete for the great monuments of cycling, but on the Tour we are going to fight for as much as possible with Primoz Roglic and Jonas Vingegaard,” said sporting director Merijn Zeeman.

The Jumbo Visma technician confirmed the presence for the Tour of 6 riders: Roglic, Vingegaard, Steven Kruijswijk, Sepp Kuss, Rohan Dennis and Wout van Aert. “The last two places will be given in May. The Tour is the biggest race in the world and the hardest to win, but we think it’s a wonderful challenge. We are eager to meet the challenge, “Zeeman said.

The Giro and the Vuelta also enter the plans of the Jumbo Visma, concentrated on the Costa Blanca. Tom Dumoulin will opt for the Giro d’Italia, a race he won in 2017, and for the Vuelta the training will depend on how the Tour ends.

Zeeman made it clear that the start of the Tour in the Netherlands inspires him to put together a competitive formation that begins to make a difference from the opening team time trial in Utrecht.

Undoubtedly, The Tour will be the great objective of the Jumbo Visma in a year in which it will challenge the supremacy of Pogacar. “In 2021 we had our best Tour ever, with four stage wins and second place overall with Vingegaard. We will do our best to present the best version of ourselves in July, but we also know that the competition is strong. Tadej Pogacar is, of course, again the main favorite and we are one of the challengersZeeman concluded.
