« Of course, it’s very clear that once you win the yellow jersey you defend him next year, so I would say it makes sense for him to do that, but let’s be clear, we haven’t made that decision yet. I’d love to talk to Jonas first and the other coaches, » Zeman declared. , which allows for the possibility of lure Vingguard in lieu of the Tour (ASO will introduce the track next Thursday, October 27) with the Tour Italia route, which brings up to 70 kilometers of timed riding (three timed stages) and a very challenging climb.

Zeeman left the door open « Jonas has never competed in the Giro, so it remains an option for him if he wants to. »

Primo Roglicha three-time Vuelta Award winner recovering from shoulder surgery, and a new addition to the Jumbo-Visma team Wilko Kieldermann.

Zeman announced: « I also want to hear Primo’s opinion and speak to all our coaches and preparation experts. We need about two months to prepare the plan, so we will already know how and what in December. »

“If you want to win the Giro next year, you have to be a time-trial specialist, and that’s very clear. I heard the commentary. Jay Hindley Ziman (of this year’s Giro winner, op. cit.) who said the road was not for him, and I agree. « A lot of long climbs and very difficult mountain stages, but also in the trial period, it is possible to get several minutes of advantage » .

Therefore, it makes perfect sense to send the administration of Jumbo-Visma to Giro Primo Roglichthe current Olympic Trials champion, who finished third in the Giro in 2019, but already smelled like an all-out victory, Vingegaard is back on the Tour and fighting for the yellow jersey once again with Tadej Pogačar, who is currently with Team Emirates in Dubai.

But at the moment this is only a guess, Zeeman does not rule out any possibility.

« What about Jonas? Just look at his last two Trials on the Tour. He specializes in Trials as well. Especially when he’s at his best, » Zeman noted.

“Pogačar, he is also a time trial specialist, Remco, that is quite clear. I would say that Primož, Jonas, Pogačar and Evenepoel are the best time trialists in the world at the moment and they all can easily handle the track from the next Giro.” Zeman is convinced .
