Jumbo-Visma has announced that Tom Dumoulin, Primoz Roglic and Steven Kruisjwijk will ride in the Tour de France 2020.

During the presentation of the 2020 roster in the Netherlands, the Dutch team announced the calendar of its leaders. It stands out that the winner of the 2017 Giro d'Italia Dumoulin, Roglic -who won the 2019 Vuelta a España, and Kruijswijk -who finished in the third overall position in the 2019 Tour de France- will be starting at the French grand tour.

It was also announced that Wout van Aert will return to competition in Loenhout in Cyclocross next week. The Belgian rider will be targetting the Spring Classics and will be part of the roster for the Tour de France.

Roglic's main objective will be the French grand tour and his season also includes Paris-Nice, the Fleche Wallonne and Liege-Bastogne-Liege. Kruisjwijk will lead the team in the Vuelta and will also be part of the formation of the Tour de France, along with Robert Gesink.

For the Giro d'Italia, Dylan Groenewegen will start with the objective of winning stages while George Bennett will be the GC leader. The sprinter will also start at the Spanish grand tour.

Dumoulin will start his season in the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana in February and his calendar will also include the Amstel Gold Race and the Walloon Ardennes classics. The main objectives for the new addition of Jumbo-Visma will be the Tour de France and the Olympic Games of Tokyo 2020.

"The goal is definitely to win the Tour", said Dumoulin. "Full on, with three leaders! It was very nice to find out that all three of us are on the same page."

Tony Martin, Sepp Kuss and Laurens De Plus will complete the team's roster for the Tour de France.
