Team DSM has announced the roster that will be at the start line of the third grand tour of the season, La Vuelta a España.

The team is going to field eight strong riders in the closing grand tour of the 2021 season. The Spanish race is known for its gruesome route that includes heavy climbs that are set to be the ones that decide the last winner of a big race of this season, that is closer to the normality.

"We bring a strong team to the Vuelta once again this year, who are very motivated to end Team DSM's year on a high note and bring home some top results," said the team's coach Matt Winston. "The team have gelled really well together at altitude camp with some good workshops, as we ironed out and pre-discussed our tactical plans for the race. We’ll take an offensive approach with the team, first focusing on stages and seeing where that brings us, moulding our approach to the race as we head towards Santiago de Compostela.

"Jai is still recovering from his injury sustained at the Giro d’Italia. There have been some ups and downs in the last period for him, so we will make the final call on whether he will take the start after as the race draws closer. After the final races that we have coming up to put the finishing touches to our hard work, we look forward to bringing our Grand Tour season to a close in Spain next month."

Team DSM's line-up for the Vuelta a España (August 14-September 5):

Thymen Arensman
Romain Bardet
Alberto Dainese
Nico Denz
Chad Haga
Jai Hindley
Michael Storer
Martijn Tusveld
