Team Jumbo-Visma with sprint and GC ambitions to Tour de France

Just like last year, Team Jumbo-Visma is heading to the Tour de France in July with big sprint and GC ambitions. In 2018, this resulted in a fourth and fifth place in the general classification and two sprint stage wins with Dylan Groenewegen. Besides this, Primoz Roglic won the queen stage over the Tourmalet and Aubisque on the penultimate day. The number three and two-time stage winner of the Giro d’Italia is going to skip the French stage race this year.

Team Jumbo-Visma again counts on the fast legs of Dylan Groenewegen and the steady Steven Kruijswijk. The Dutch leaders will be supported by their compatriot Mike Teunissen, the Norwegian Amund Jansen, the German Tony Martin, the New Zealander George Bennett and the Belgian Tour newcomers Wout van Aert and Laurens De Plus. The team starts in Brussels after a specific high altitude training.

For Van Aert, his Tour debut means the next step in his career. After strong spring classics with podium places in Strade Bianche and E3 BinckBank Classic, the 24-year-old rider from Herentals is now starting in Critérium du Dauphiné. “Wout is ready for this next step”, sportive director Merijn Zeeman explains.

“He makes our team even stronger. He hasn’t had a lot of race days and Wout has prepared himself in an ideal way. After the Tour, he will ride the Prudential Ride London and after that, his cyclocross season starts.”
