Primož Roglič: Wout van Aert is '100% dedicated to the whole team'

Jumbo-Visma head into the Tour de France with three leaders, and a split strategy that they hope pays off

For a third year in a row, Primož Roglič has one big goal for his season: the Tour de France. The Slovenian will be hoping it is third time lucky at the race, after the shock of being beaten at the last by Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) in 2020 and then being forced out through injury last year.

This time, however, it is different. Roglič heads into this Tour being one of three competing interests in his Jumbo-Visma team; he is no longer the clear, sole figurehead. Alongside him is Jonas Vingegaard, the Dane who ably filled in for him last year, finishing second, who is looking to do the same again, and Wout van Aert, who could win almost every stage, and is targeting the green jersey.
