Jumbo-Visma rally around Tom Dumoulin but start to look ahead



Tom Dumoulin‘s decision to pause his racing career with immediate effect has been greeted by a wave of understanding and compassion. His Jumbo-Visma team has offered their unconditional support and not put a time frame on any of his plans, while former teammates like Marcel Kittel have offered their support too

While Dumoulin’s decision to leave the Jumbo-Visma training camp on Saturday and take time away from the sport has been backed by his team, they also know that they must try and fill the athletic void left by the 30-year-old Dutchman, who on Friday was announced as a joint leader for the Tour de France. Those plans look all but over at this point but team director Merijn Zeeman knows that several riders on the squad’s long roster will see Dumoulin’s step back as an opportunity.
