Confident Team Jumbo-Visma to Giro’s first mountain stage

Team Jumbo-Visma confidently heads towards the first mountain stage of this Giro d’Italia. The team of Addy Engels and Jan Boven made it through the flat eleventh stage without any problems. The stage finished in a bunch sprint. Primoz Roglic retained his second place overall.

The stage to Novi Ligure was marked by an early breakaway of three riders and was easily controlled by the sprinter teams, who, for the time being, had their last chance today for a sprint. Team Jumbo-Visma protected team leader Roglic all day and faced no problems.

“For us it was a good day”, Addy Engels explained. “Just like yesterday, the race scenario was predictable. The boys were in position at the right moments and the objective was to stay out of trouble. We succeeded in that. From tomorrow onwards it will be completely different and we will encounter different race scenarios. We have to wait and see how strong we will be compared to the other teams. Primoz and the team are doing really well thus far and we confidently head toward the next stages.”
