Jumbo-Visma's Tom Dumoulin has revealed the source of his recent health problems: parasites.

The winner of the 2017 Giro d'Italia had to drop from the roster of Jumbo-Visma for the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana -where he was set to debut in his new colours- and later announced that he also decided to skip the next couple of races of his calendar to allow his body to fully heal.

Days after announcing that he will not be at the start lines of Tirreno-Adriatico and Milano-Sanremo, Dumoulin has revealed the source of his health problems. "As you all know, I had not been feeling well recently," said the Dutchman through social media.

"Last week, we found parasites in my gut and since I started medication. I am feeling much better as I have had good training sessions today and over the weekend. I’m looking forward to planning my season start and next goals very soon! I’ll keep you posted!"
