Mike Teunissen , who was allowed to wear the yellow jersey in the Tour this summer, focuses on spring. "The classic spring, from Omloop Het Nieuwsblad to the peak around the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix. Those are my main goals." He does not mention the Tour: this could mean that he does not drive it. The question then is whether Dylan Groenewegen, for whom Teunissen always puts on the sprint, will actually ride the Tour.

In the past it was only about who could cycle the fastest, now there is a lot more involved. It's fine for me that many people are working on those improvements within the team. As a rider, I immediately accept that.

Gesink: "We are now leading in the peloton. Previously, when I went for the classification, it was very much to follow. What we do now, with a man like Primoz, is to set the course. It is basically the same sport, but on another way. I like that just as well, because that also means there are 52 victories at the end of the year. For me it is nice to work with such class trays. "

In addition we will probably know more about the fate of top sprinter Dylan Groenewegen. Will the focus of his team in the Tour be entirely on the general classification, or will the Amsterdammer still get enough help to France for his sprints?

Earlier this week it was announced that Steven Kruijswijk is the leader in the Vuelta. This afternoon more will become clear about his season. Will he be Dumoulin or Roglic's foreman, or will he be co-leader in the Giro or Tour?

2 hours ago

So Jumbo-Visma will soon announce in which big round Tom Dumoulin is the leader. The team has the ambition to someday win the Tour with the Limburger, but the route of the Giro of next season with three individual time trials seems more suitable for him.

Zoetemelk thinks that the switch from Dumoulin from Team Sunweb to Jumbo-Visma has been a good choice. "I think Tom needed a new step. Whether this is the last step that is needed towards a Tour victory? I think so. The new motivation will do him good. And Jumbo-Visma has had a very nice one in recent years development. I hope they continue. " (2/2)

Zoetemelk advises Dumoulin to opt for the Tour
Team Jumbo-Visma announced this afternoon, among other things, what the program of the new acquisition Tom Dumoulin will look like. If it is up to Joop Zoetemelk, the Limburger will make an attempt in July to succeed him as a Dutch Tour winner. "I would definitely opt for the Tour," he says in conversation with NUsport. "The Giro and the Vuelta are just as difficult as the Tour, but the Tour de France is simply the best race there is." (1/2)
