Tour de France - Steven Kruijswijk: I’m going to give my all every day
Team Jumbo-Visma

Jumbo-Visma showed an outstanding performance at the 14th stage of the Tour de France. The Dutch team was the only one to have still three members remaining at the last stretch of the Tourmalet.

George Bennet and Laurens De Plus controlled the pace of the peloton in parts of the last kilometres of the 14th stage of the French grand tour for their leader Steven Kruijswijk. The team displayed a strong performance setting the pace and putting the Dutch rider in a good position ahead of the last part of the climb.

"This was a great day for us", Kruijswijk said. "I think my shape is good. Laurens and George rode so fast that I had to slow them down a bit. When I looked over my shoulder, I saw that only ten riders were able to follow. Then I focused on the last five hundred metres. I finished in a good way and this certainly provides perspective. The team was really strong today. That is really good to see.

"During the first ten days, we were strong as a team in the sprints and now we were still represented by three riders among the best ten on the Tourmalet. After having lost Wout, we had to refocus. I think that worked out well today. I’m going to give my all every day. If I can hold on to this in the coming week, it will look good for the podium. But some others showed that it can be over from one day to the next. So let’s not get ahead of ourselves regarding the overall podium."
