Responding to recent reporting that Tom Dumoulin is under consideration for the Olympic Games, the rider’s former Jumbo-Visma team has revealed that there are still no clear signs that the Dutchman could return to the sport.

Team sports director Merijn Zeeman spoke to Cycling Weekly on the matter, confirming that things were still up in the air. “What we discussed with Tom when he left the training camp and started a break from pro cycling was that he would take his time and that he would inform us if he knew what he wants as regards his future as a pro cyclist. And that moment hasn’t come yet," Zeeman said.
