Jumbo-Visma has announced the eight names that will be announced at the beginning of Giro d'Italia next month. Earlier it became clear that Primož Roglič is going to general victory. The Slovenian has already won the Tour of the United Arab Emirates and the Tirreno-Adriatico this year.
During the press conference in December, Primož Roglič announced that he will be the leader of the Jumbo-Visma in Giro d'Italia this season, at the same time expressing the ambition to compete for the first place. An ambition that was again underscored earlier this year by team leader Merijn Zeeman: "Just write: we want to win the Giro d'Italia with Primož Roglič," he said WielerFits.
Of the selection sought earlier this year, only Floris De Tier is absent from the team. The 27-year-old Belgian's place is filled by Tom Leezer, who has helped Roglič this season on the Tour of the United Arab Emirates. The other riders of the national team are the names expected earlier: Koen Bouwman, Laurens De Plus, Jos van Emden, Robert Gesink, Paul Martens and Antwan Tolhoek.
The Giro d & # 39; Italia 2019 will be held from May 11 to June 2.
