This week’s episode of The Cycling Podcast comes from the Team Jumbo-Visma training camp in Alicante, Spain.
Richard Moore and Orla Chennaoui spent a few days with the world’s number one ranked team as they prepared for and looked ahead to the 2021 season. We hear from Marianne Vos, who will lead the new women’s team, Wout van Aert, Tom Dumoulin, Steven Kruijswijk, Sepp Kuss, Tobias Foss and Primoz Roglic, as well as team boss Richard Plugge and sporting director Merijn Zeeman.
Van Aert explains why he has agreed to three more years with the team, Dumoulin discusses his Classics ambitions, and we hear who will lead Jumbo-Visma at the three Grand Tours.
We also look back on 2020 and a Tour de France that looked to be theirs until Roglic’s defeat to Tadej Pogacar on the penultimate day. What happened at La Planche des Belles Filles, did Jumbo-Visma make any mistakes over the three weeks of a Tour in which they were the strongest team, and how can they try and ensure it doesn’t happen again?
