Tom Dumoulin has the Tour of Italy’s principal objective is declared for the coming cycling year. That made the Dutch rider of Sunweb Sunday via a video on Twitter known. The route scheme of the Italian stage race is to him more perfect than that of the Tour de France, which he might also be true. In both rounds ended Dumoulin this year for the second.
After the Tour was the Limburger almost certain that he will in the coming years for the overall victory in France wanted to go. Also said Dumoulin that he, unlike this year, no two large rounds would be driving. Now he says participation in the Tour after the Giro, and certainly not to exclude. “But we’ll decide later,” said Dumoulin, who the Giro in 2017 won.
“We have long spoken about: the main goal is the Giro,” says Dumoulin. “We have long thought of the Tour, but the Giro has such a nice course during the coming year. I love the country, I keep of the course. It is very well possible that I am also the Tour ride, just like last year, but that is not yet decided. That’s what we see after the Giro. But the opportunity is great.”
The Tour of Italy starts on 11 may with an individual time trial over 8 kilometres in Bologna.
