Steven Kruijswijk is the leader in the Vuelta a España of Team Jumbo-Visma. The number three of the last Tour de France is looking forward to it and is ambitious. He announced this in response to the presentation of the route this evening in Madrid.
With the opening team time trial in Utrecht and the following two stages to Den Bosch and Breda, the Vuelta is Dutch tinted.
Primoz Roglic won the last edition in a magical way. Which riders Kruijswijk will join, will be announced on Friday during the team presentation.
Steven Kruijswijk: “I see it as a great opportunity to try and get on the podium in the Vuelta. Every grand tour that starts in the Netherlands has something extra for us as a Dutch team. For me, two stages really stand out. The stage with the finish on the Tourmalet and on the Angliru. Those are climbs that I know both. Those stages suit me and are meant for me. These are often the unique stages that are pivotal in a grand tour to do something."
