Team Jumbo-Visma have announced their line-up for the Tour de France, which kicks off in Copenhagen on Friday 1st July.

One of the team’s key players, Rohan Dennis, who after joining from INEOS over the winter impressed with his role riding for Primož Roglič at Paris-Nice and the Tour de Romandie, is absent from the squad this year after experiencing stomach problems during the recent Tour de Suisse.

The squad has been selected around the team’s dual ambitions, with Roglič and last year’s second-place Jonas Vingegaard leading the team for GC, while Wout van Aert will contest the green jersey after his three stage wins in 2021.

“We have several ambitions, so we have chosen riders who are the best at different terrains,” team directeur sportif Merijn Zeeman said in a statement.

“We have to guide our leaders safely through the first hectic week but also be able to make it difficult for the other Tour favourites in the mountains. Wout also deserves sufficient support in his hunt for stage victories and the green jersey. This squad is fit and, in our view, capable of pursuing our ambitions in the best way possible.”
