Tom Dumoulin faces the 2022 season with great enthusiasm after a difficult 2021 in which he moved away from cycling for several months not feeling happy on the bike. Feelings that he gradually recovered and that were translated into successes such as the silver medal in the time trial of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

A reappearance that from the Jumbo-Visma they see with good eyes, as confirmed by one of the team directors, Merijn Zeeman, in an interview with the Cyclingnews portal. “Tom had this injury at the end of the season, he went on vacation but he has already returned to training and we are planning the season. He is still a candidate to fight for great tours. He has gone through a personal development process and now knows how to work and how to handle things in his career. “

Zeeman has yet to define Dumoulin’s schedule for next season, but he believes the Dutch rider maintains the qualities that already led him to win the Giro d’Italia in 2017. “It is a new step for him, but I think he has the qualities that he already showed before stopping. He is a very good cyclist in one-week races and also in large tours. He is very strong in time trial and climbs very well in the mountains. We’ll take a closer look at it in December and review its targets for 2022.
