Team Jumbo-Visma is looking forward to tomorrow’s time trial with confidence after the second stage in Paris-Nice. The Dutch team brought their leader Primoz Roglic to the finish line in Amilly without any problems.
The stage once again had a nervous and hectic outcome with the threat for echelons and several crashes. National Champion George Bennett crashed in the final of the stage, but was able to continue and reach the finish.
Sports director Grischa Niermann looked back on the stage with mixed feelings. “It was a nervous stage and the last fifty kilometres were very dangerous at some points. There was also not enough wind to split the peloton apart. In the end, we survived the stage with Primoz well. So that’s good. George’s crash was a setback. We will have to see how he is doing.”
"We know that Primoz can do a good time trial, but he is certainly not the top favourite for the stage victory."
Tomorrow is the first real test for the overall standings. The third stage is a time trial of a little over fourteen kilometres. Niermann looked forward to the race against the clock with confidence. “We know that Primoz can do a good time trial, but he is certainly not the top favourite for the stage victory.”
