Jumbo-Visma returns to Tour de France with ‘triple threat’

George Bennett to lead at Giro d'Italia, while Primož Roglič, Tom Dumoulin, Steven Kruijswijk return to Tour de France, with Sepp Kuss and Wout van Aert as wingmen.

Jumbo-Visma returns with its “triple threat” for the 2021 Tour de France.

Steven Kruijswijk, third overall in 2019, is back on the team’s preliminary Tour roster after missing last year’s edition with injury. Runner-up Primož Roglič and Tom Dumoulin also return in leadership roles for the Dutch outfit. Officials also confirmed Sepp Kuss and Wout van Aert will be heading to the Tour.

George Bennett will see his chances at the Giro d’Italia, where he will be GC leader in the Italian grand tour. Officials have yet to designate its lineup for the Vuelta a España, but Kuss hinted Friday he could see his chances as a protected GC leader at the Spanish grand tour later this season.
