Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb) says his decision between the 2018 Giro d'Italia and Tour de France will not be changed by Chris Froome's Giro plans.

The 27-year-old from Maastricht, who became the first Dutchman to win the Giro in May this year, has already decided. He will compete in either the Giro or the Tour, but not both in 2018.
