That said sports director Merijn Zeeman of Jumbo-Visma before the start of the third stage. It’s another ride with an uphill finish. Dumoulin ran into problems on the first day and lost a lot of time on Wednesday. He said he was ’empty’.
“Tom now has a different view and would like to stay with the team to help. We now put it in saving mode for two days and then look at the weekend to see if it can still be of value, ”says Zeeman. Prior to the Vuelta it was said that the course of the race would determine whether Dumoulin or Primoz Roglic would be the leader. The Slovenian, winner of the Vuelta last year, immediately took the leader’s jersey on the opening day.
Zeeman admitted to having traveled to the Vuelta with some doubts. “It is a strange season that we are experiencing. We also tried to build in some rest after the Tour for Primoz, Sepp Kuss and Robert Gesink to see what is still in the tank afterwards. Everyone knows about Tom that he was out for a long time. We talked about it well and think it is good to build up some competition hardness to start the winter with that base. ”
The final climb on Thursday has to let Dumoulin “let it go”, while a flat stage will follow on Friday. “Then we will see how things are going. Tom would like to contribute, but it must be good for him. Otherwise we will make the decision that he gets off ”, says Zeeman.
