The team Sunweb next week to Italy, heading for the Giro is built around the ambitions of team leader Tom Dumoulin. The Dutchman goes on the hunt for his second victory in the Italian stage race and will receive support from Jan Bakelants and Louis Vervaeke.
“We want the successes of the past few years to repeat, we continue with the same ambition to Italy and focus on the general classification,” said sports director Marc Reef. Dumoulin finished after his victory in 2017 last year when second behind the Brit Chris Froome.
Sunweb charges in addition to his team leader and Belgians Bakelants and Vervaeke on the Australians Chris Hamilton, Jai Hindley, and Robert Power, the Dutchman Sam Oomen and the American Chad Haga.
