Steven Kruijswijk, George Bennett to represent LottoNL-Jumbo at Vuelta a España

Dutch WorldTour team LottoNL-Jumbo has unveiled its line-up for the upcoming Vuelta a España.

As expected, the formation will be led by Steven Kruijswijk who hopes to do better than in the Giro d'Italia where he was forced to abandon due to illness with only a few days left to go.

Kruijswijk, who almost won the 2016 Giro d'Italia but eventually dropped to fourth place as result of a nasty crash, will be joined by George Bennett. The New Zealander impressed in the recent Tour de France where he often managed to stay with the best on the climbs.

Veteran Stef Clement will make his second grand tour appearance of the season after finishing 23rd in the Giro d'Italia. This will be the fifth Vuelta for the Dutchman, who will be set to assist Kruijswijk wherever possible.

The full line-up:

Koen Bouwman
Stef Clement
