Tom Dumoulin has fully recovered from the knee injury that scuppered his 2019 season, according to his Jumbo-Visma team, who hope the Dutch rider will bring them more Grand Tour success in 2020.

His new sports director Merijn Zeeman told De Limburger that Dumoulin is now able to train intensively, and Jumbo-Visma hope the greater depth Dumoulin will bring to their squad will help them follow up Primož Roglič's Vuelta a España win in 2019. "His trainer Mathieu Heijboer and I, as a coach, work very intensively with him and we no longer see any limitations," said Zeeman.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
